I am traveling to Greece this summer and flying into Athens. I will spend a few days there, then head out for a cruise. I am trying to figure out where to stay. When I ask, no one tells me to stay in Piraeus, which would be the most convenient option. Is there a reason no one is stying near Piraeus? Or am I missing something?

So far, I am thinking of booking a hotel by the Acropolis - but I want to consider all my options.

I have heard very, very good things about a three island cruise that you can do that goes to Aegina, Poros, and Hydra - it's a one day thing. I would stay near Piraeus- there are some lovely hotels! Also, I would recommend going to the temple of Poseidon at sunset - that was one of the highlights for me on one of my last trips to Greece.
 

Taking an Architecture Tour in Greece?

I'm planning a trip to Greece and I'm really interested in taking an architecture tour to explore the rich history and unique styles of Greek architecture.

Additionally, what are some must-see architectural wonders that shouldn't be missed? Are there specific regions or cities known for their architectural significance that I should prioritize?

Is Marathon a good day trip from Athens?

I've been planning an itinerary for my upcoming trip to Athens, and I've always been fascinated by the historical significance of Marathon. Considering its role in ancient history and the famous battle that took place there, it seems like a place that might be worth a visit.

However, I'm on the fence about dedicating a whole day trip to Marathon. From what I understand, it isn’t too far from Athens, but I'm trying to weigh up whether the experience is worthy compared to spending that time exploring more within the city itself.

Has anyone made the day trip to Marathon from Athens? Was it an enriching experience, and what are the can't-miss sights? Is the archeological site/museum there engaging enough for a history buff? Also, how about the logistics – is it easy to get to by public transport, or would you suggest renting a car or going with a tour?

I am just trying to decide if it's worth it, or if I should plan to stay overnight. Thanks!
