I’ve heard many other users post on here about how hot and unbearable Athens is during the summer. But what can I do? It’s my favorite city! How many days do you all recommend for sightseeing, restaraunts and shopping?

For someone that it is their first time in Greece, I would say spend no more than about 3 or 4 days in Athens, if returning maybe 2 days.

Even though there are great beaches in the Athens area, I personally prefer spending times in the island more than spending time in Athens.

Hope this helps!

I could spend weeks in Athens and it never gets old! But at a minimum, I'd do at least 3. You'll want to see the Acropolis and two days will leave you with enough time to do that, plus see some other sites and have a little fun dining out and seeing some night life.

For tourists, you'd want about a week because there is a lot to do between shopping and sightseeing.

Why arent the old Olympic stadiums being used for anything?

This is something that I’ve wondered for a very long time but I’ve never heard an answer. How come the old Olympic stadiums in Greece aren’t being repurposed for something useful. This is a phenomen that has also happened in other countries where the Olympic Games have been held. Why did this happen in Greece though?

Best Ice cream in Athens!❤️❤️😋😋

The best neighborhood to stay in Athens is Thiseio

The Thiseio neighbourhood is perfect for your stay in Athens because you are able to have access to some of the best sites. It is walking distance to the Acropolis, and Monastiraki as well as many different art galleries, shops, restaurants and cafés. When I stay in this neighborhood, I really don't find myself needing to stray and I can find everything I need in walking distance.

The Stavros Niarchos center is a great place to take the kids

The Stavros Niarchos cultural center is a great place to bring kids and the family. The architecture is amazing and there is a beautiful area to walk outside and enjoy the nature and views. The center is known for sustainability and innovation, and even has its own sustainability hub. There are multiple exhibitions going on throughout the year that showcase Greek Culture and modern and historical art. Here is the link to the foundation https://www.snfcc.org/en
