I am trying to plan a girl's trip to Greece and am fleeing out the details. We'd be flying in from the United States on the East Coast, as I am from Baltimore. So, it seems that we need to fly into Athens. Although Athens isn't planned to be our full vacation - we plan to head to one of the islands - I am thinking we should spend a few days in the city. That being said, we'd do all the usuals - see the historical sites like the Parthenon and all that. I was thinking we might want some beach time when we are in Athens to get us started. I heard there are some beaches nearby? Are any of them worth spending time at? We are looking for a beach with a bit of a scene - like an outdoor beach but maybe a nightclub nearby?

Votsalakia beach is about 10km south Athens though it is pebbly. There are more beaches a little bit farther from Athens like Agios Nikolaos beach, it is a family-friendly beach close to Anavyssos. You can stay even just a night and still enjoy it. Then you can enjoy city sites such as Mycenae, Epidavros, and Nafplio.

It'd be best if you travel by car so you can visit more beaches. In case you don't there are a lot of Athens private tours like https://gowithguide.com/greece/athens you can get so you'll have a smooth trip and personalize your itineraries and discover more destinations.

Has anyone here seen a performance in Epidavros?

I am so fascinated by Ancient Greek history and from what I understand, some of the ancient theaters are still intact and performances are being held there. I've been research Epidavros and noticed that they hold performances there in the summer. Has anyone been? What was it like?

I've seen footage online of people marveling at the amazing acoustics, and I want to experience this for myself.

Great Athens Restaurants for Dining

I love the restaurants in Athens - they're just so amazing. The chefs in the city do a great job giving a variety of foods from Greek cuisine, from the old to the new. I found this link with a nice list of nine restaurants that I plan to try. What do you guys thing? Have you been to any of these?
