Athens, Greece- a 2 day itinerary


In many ways, Athens is not one of my favorite cities. There is a lot of sprawl, smog, and driving in the city is only for the very daring. But then you look up to the Acropolis and see why Athens is not quite like anywhere else. Add to that an excellent public transportation system, a plethora of delicious tavernas, great museums, amazing archaeological sites, friendly locals that love kids, and it will quickly grow on you. It is one of my favorite places to visit. Just don’t drive there.
