With a full day at your disposal (provided you didn’t sleep in), take your time and carefully plan you day 2 which is reserved for excitement, adventure and some serious exploration.

Start your day with some strong and aromatic Greek coffee, in combination with delicious and exotic figs in honey at some the local eateries.

That will really get your ball rolling and prepare you for a visit to the sites and historical attractions around the Acropolis, which is a must while you’re in Athens.

Check out the magnificent ruins, the many temples including the Parthenon, as well as the Ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus. Don’t forget to visit the museums such as the Acropolis Museum, or the Museum of Greek Children’s Art, for those with the little ones.

Make sure you grab a bite to eat at one of the local tavernas before and definitely pay a visit to the tiny neighbourhood of Anafiotika – an amazing and picturesque place adorned with incredibly attractive ancient monuments and colorful houses which vividly portray the beautifully diverse Greek culture.
