The warm weather makes everything around it friendly in my opinion. Athens is a 2 day destination if you are not a big fan of history. But if you find yourself here – please advance book a local guide to understand the past – else you like me will be running around ruins in the unbearable heat and find yourself running back to the car. When in Athens, you have to visit the Pantheon, the Acropolis and the Acropolis Metropolitian Museum and short walk up the Lykavittos hill. I would highly recommend you take a toy train ride from outside the Museum to go upto the Acropolis. This takes you from some very interesting narrow streets of Plaka – which also happen to be a Café Paradise. My gestimate is about a 1000 small eateries and boutiques in this area are going to keep you busy.
We also took a day trip outside the city of Athens to the Corinth Canal, Mycenae Tours and Nafplion Tours.. These can be easily avoidable ! Except for Nafplion which is a small city by the water front with some amazing Pizzas !!
We were just lazy travellers who couldn’t make it to Delphi – but then again we were a bunch of non-history lovers and Delphi offers exactly that – THE RUINS !! Ofcourse the night life is amazing ! Head to Akrotiri for the best party in town ! If you are lucky as we were you will reserve in time for a table by the edge which is almost on a small cliff handle. So while on one side you enjoy the sea – the other side you have some popular hits and people grooving to them !! MYKONOS – This party city is all about the best beach bars at Paradise and Super Paradise !! Keep a day each to go party at these water fronts… You will be lured by some amazing music and cocktails free flowing.. spend a day alternating between a dip in the blue sea and enjoying the sea breeze with your favourite concoctions.. !!
