Hands down, the best place to get a covid test is the Athens airport. I suggest you take test when you land and before you arrive, as its likely that you're staying in the city and not near the airport (the airport is a bit of a drive from downtown Athens). There are antigen and PCR tests that allow for a day long window, meaning you don't need to arrive at a specific time to take the test. There is usually a bit of a wait but the process is smooth.

We live in Alimos and have a walk in testing site that can do either rapid or PCR. Our most recent guests walked to the site and got their tests for their flight to the US for 10 euro. It is recommended that you bring your passport and ensure that your birthdate is correct. If you are using verifly, emphasize that you need the results emailed in English.

Great advice, I forgot my passport number when I went last and it was so frustrating. Some airlines require that you have your passport number on the covid test.
 
COVID what's that?
Why are you still talking about this lie

Tips for taking taxis in Athens!

Of course, there are many reputable taxi drivers in Greece, and these days it's hard to get ripped off… but you always have to remain cautious. Some of the best advice that I can give you about taking taxis in Athens is knowing a bit about what is the normal price for your area and distance. I recommend that you ask waiters, Greek friends, or your hotel concierge about what should be expected for your trip. Before you start your ride, make sure that you ask about how much the trip will cost. And make sure that they turn the meter on at the start of your trip. In addition, I always check Google maps to make sure that the taxi driver is taking the fastest route.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus, Acropolis

Now hear me out. I usually go to see a performance at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus theatre every time I visit Athens. A few times I have seen operas there. In fact, I have only been to operas at this theatre, having never been to an opera at any other time in my life. I have to say it is an amazing experience. If you are going this year and you have never been to an opera, Toscana is being performed here as part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival. Do yourself a favour and go see it. You can find details here: https://whyathens.com/events/tosca-greek-national-opera/

And to get you in the mood, here are a couple of photos of the last opera I went to see there:
