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.

It's easy to forget that there is more to the Acropolis than the Parthenon. You could easily spend a whole day there and I would even consider taking a tour so you don't miss anything.

Monastiraki and Plaka are the best areas of Athens hands down!

Monastiraki and Plaka are the best place for shopping and eating restaurants! They're both really close to the Acropolis and there are many local shops and restaurants. I really love the area and highly suggest that you visit the area and even get a hotel that's closeby because there are just so many things to do. Its pretty safe, which is important because Athens is getting slightly dangerous. :)
