I just moved to Athens a few months ago but I haven't been to any of the museums because of the pandemic but I'm planning on going this summer. Does anyone know if there are student discounts for museum tickets?
 
Yes! I believe that any EU university student receives a discount for most museums. I know for sure that you will be able to get a discount for entering the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum.
 
I heard that there is something called the International Student Identity Card which will help you get all kinds of discounts, even for reduced fare on the ferries. I'd look into this so that you could take full advantage of the discounts. I think discounts on things like museum entry, theatrical performances, etc are also a benefit of having this card.
 

Should you come to Athens in the winter?

I have never been to Greece in winter and I was considering it. I found this video - it was very informative! Thought I'd share:

Public Transportation System in Athens

Can anyone give me some advice on the public transportation system in Athens, Greece?

I will be staying in Piraeus but will need to get around. I'll want to visit Acropolis area, as well as several other of the Athens neighborhoods.

Visiting the Sounio Area

I am flying into Athens soon. I know I want to visit the Temple of Poseidon. In looking into the area, though, it seems like there's a lot more to do than I thought. For example, I saw pics and there's a nice resort in the area...

Should I maybe consider staying in this area? Is there enough to do?

Great Restaurants to Try in Athens?

I will have a few nights in Athens to enjoy the city. I love Greek food! I am making a list of restaurants I want to try or have been recommended to me. Anything to add or subtract?

  • Aleria Restaurant (was told this was higher end)
  • O Thanasis (Gyros and souvlaki)
  • 360 Cocktail Bar (for food and nightlife)
  • Granada
The gyro place listed I thought might be a good lunch choice, and I plan to enjoy some nightlife at least one of the nights.
