Hey everyone, like i’ve posted before, I’m going to be travelling to Greece for my honeymoon. I really want to visit Athens, and explore all of the history and culture but i’m not sure if it can be romantic for my husband and I? Any advice?

Athens can toootalllyyy be romantic. If you find the right spots, and avoided crowded and tourist areas it can be a great time. I would suggest visiting one or two historic attractions, and then spending the rest of the time walking around Kolonaki and Monastiraki. Here's a great cafe I went to a while back, the mood was perfect for a date.kolonaki.jpg

This is such a good question, and one that I’ve been researching myself. It really depends on what you consider romantic. If you like to lie on the beach with your partner, Athens is not the place for you. If you want to be in a lively city with twinkly lights, and rooftop bars, then I would recommend it! This is a picture that I took from a rooftop bar (it's during the day but you get the idea) :)

There’s so many oppportunities to setup romantic dates in Athens, the up and coming restaurants are so hip and upscale. I love to visit Lycabettus hill in the city, it’s so beautiful and you can get a great view of the city. The cafe there is also great, but you might need a reservation if you go during a busy time.

Oh yes, definitely. And you don't even have to go for fine-fining at the terrace of an Athens restaurant with a view to the Acropolis to feel the romantic vibes of Athens. You can do this simply by going to a quaint taverna in Plaka, right under the Acropolis. Like those situated either side of the steps near the octagonal Tower of the Winds. This is my favourite corner of Plaka to have dinner outdoors and I highly recommend it. Right under the Acropolis. For me, it doesn't get more romantic than this. But if you prefer to have the sea near you, I would recommend going to Pireas at Marina Zea or Microlimano.
 

What is shopping at the Athens laiki (farmers market) like?

I've always wanted to visit an authentic Greek farmers market (this is a pic of the one I go to in Toronto, I love it!). Are there any good ones in downtown Athens? If so, where are they and do you have any tips?
