I have a friend who is staying in Athens just a few nights then going off on a cruise leaving Piraeus. This is in the late summer sometime. I told her I would ask advice - I am at a loss because I usually spend longer in Greece and get an Air BnB - at least that is what I have been doing lately.
Anyway, where should she stay? Any advice on areas of Athens or even names of hotels?
Though I will be in Mykonos for a while when I come to Greece (soon!) I will have some time in Athens.
I will be tied up with wedding festivities on Mykonos, but I will have some time. So, I want to learn about the history and culture of the island. I know there has to be more to it there than all the parties and the beach scene.
I plan to visit the Cycladic Museum in Athens to get ready. Is there anything I should keep in mind while I explore the museum?
There's a cruise that you can take as a day trip from Piraeus while staying in the Athens area - it goes to Hydra, Aegina, and Poros. Does anyone know what I am talking about? I know some people who did it and loved it, and I want to do it, too. I want to be able to book it in advance. I can't find anything about the cruise unfortunately! Does anyone know about it and can steer me in the right direction?
I am going to spending some time in the Piraeus area for a night or so this fall before boarding a ferry. I decided to stay closer to the port rather than in the center of Athens. I noticed that there was a museum in Piraeus! Is this worth visiting? I have never heard of it. I imagine it maybe would have artifacts from nearby digs?
