If you're looking for ancient sites, don't just stop at the acropolis! Érechthéion is a hidden gem and I had no idea this temple existed. According to Wikipedia "The Erechtheion or Erechtheum is an ancient Greek temple on the north side of the Acropolis of Athens in Greece which was dedicated to both Athena and Poseidon."

Thanks for sharing this. It's easy to think that the Parthenon is the only thing worth visiting at the Acropolis, but there's actually a lot more there that shouldn't be ignored.

Are there any areas where US expats hang out in Athens?

As I've posted before, I've been looking to retire in Greece. Kind of hard when I don't speak Greek though, so Id like to make a couple of American, Canadian, UK, or Australian friends who speak English. I'll be in Athens for a while, does anyone know if there are any spots where foreigners hang out?

Workout classes in Athens!

My cousin recommended these for me for anyone who is interested....I am not one to workout on vacation though LOL

Beautiful trip to Plaka today

I walked around Plaka today for a few hours (my favorite neighborhood in the city) and stumbled upon the beautiful and small Museum of Folk Music, afterwards we stopped at a Yiasemi cafe the was scattered over these steep marble stairs. The vibe was excellent and the coffee was just as great, I highly recommend it. https://www.yiasemi.gr
