Funny enough, I have a quick 8 hour layover in Athens before going to Turkey for a business trip. I've never really explored the area by the airport. Is there anything to do there?

Totally! There's a really nice beach town called Porto Rafti with great tavernas and really clear blue waters. It's about twenty minutes from the airport and there are also some small hotels if you would like to stop and rest

Last time I went to the Athens airport I stayed in Porto Rafti and it was amazing. We had dinner at the limani (port) at a great pizza restaurant. It's a great place for a layover
 

Are there student discounts for Athens museum tickets?

I just moved to Athens a few months ago but I haven't been to any of the museums because of the pandemic but I'm planning on going this summer. Does anyone know if there are student discounts for museum tickets?

The Daphne Monastery is beautiful!!

This is one of my favorite places to visit outside of Athens! It's considered a masterpiece of the Byzantine Empire and there are 11th century frescos, religious paintings, and icons. The monastery is right at the edge of the city of Athens in the suburb of Chaidari.
