City in a day

City in a day AthensSeeing the whole of Athens in one day is an impossible task. A good idea would be to concentrate on some basic parts of the city. Visitors can get a fairly good idea of all of Athens's treasures by concentrating on those monuments and museums which make Athens the city that it is. It would be advisable to follow the guide below.

 

Start early in the morning and make arguably Athens' most famous site, capable of being viewed from all parts of the city, your first stop. The Acropolis comprising of various temples which was the centre from which the city of Athens grew will give tourists a fairly clear idea of what Ancient Greece comprised of, its culture and its history.  Visit the theatre of Dionysos located nearby.

 

Head straight for the National Archaeological Museum and spare at least a few hours for this treasure house which is store to some of the greatest archaeological finds from all over Greece belonging to different historical eras, along with statues of the various Greek Gods and goddesses.

 

Last of all head to Syntagma and the National Gardens and admire the mother of all temples that is, the temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian's Arch,  two of Athens most prized possessions. Even if night has fallen, these two are sights to behold as they are well lit after dusk.

 

Unwind at one of Athens' many fabulous restaurants. Try out Thanasis located in Syntagma. Tourists will get to enjoy simple and delicious Greek cuisine and be treated to divine souvlaki and pita.
