I love the beach, but when I'm in the city I like to cool off at a nice rooftop pool. Any tips for good pools that are open to the public? I don't usually stay in hotels fancy enough for a pool LOL

Most people don't think of pools when going to Greece since the beaches are so amazing, but here are a few good resources that talk about some of the best public pools in the Athens area:




Hope this helps!!

I don't think I have ever been in a pool in Greece! I usually just find a reason to hit the beach and take a dip in the sea. :) I will say that I stayed at the Divani Apollon Palace once and the pool did look really nice, even though I never went into it.
 

Visit the Cypriot Museum of Art in Athens

Cypriot art is a strong and important part of Greek culture, that unfortunately many people forget about. Whether or not that you believe Cyprus should or shouldn't be a part of Greece, the beauty of Cypriot culture and art is undeniable. You can see a lot of Cypriot Art at the museum in Athens which showcases about 1,000 paintings and sculptures from Ancient Greece to modern day.

Beautiful views from our day trip to Aegina

We took a wonderful day trip to Aegina from Athens! The ferry boat was so short and delightful. It took about one hour from Piraeus which is the country’s largest port. We rented an ATV which was about 35€ for the day and took it around the whole island. It’s definitely not touristy and much more quiet than other islands. I definitely recommend it for a quick getaway.

Check out this political tour of Athens

I stumbled upon this great social and political tour of Athens. Many people don't know the side of Greece, and it's extremely relevant. If you're interested in social issues or politics, I really recommend it. I didn't get the opportunity to actually do it myself, but there are really good reviews on Airbnb. The tour also gives you a taste of the different neighbourhoods in Athens, especially those that are relative to political movement such as Exarcheia.

My favourite Athens suburb

I just love Exarcheia and these videos give a great insight into its unique and colourful nature.


Where to go in Athens for some of the best nightlife!

Athens has some great nightlife!! There are so many options to choose from, and it really depends on what you're looking for. My personal favourites are rooftop bars that overlook the Parthenon, you can find most of these in Thissio. But many local Athenians would say that these spots are very touristy and not as fun Exarchia and Gazi for example. If you're interested in going to bars that are by the beach, but still pretty close to the city I recommend Gylfada. Psiri it's also a very trendy neighbourhood that is popular amongst the locals! Try them out and let me know what you think!
