5 Things to Do Athens, Greece 🏛
Athens is such a cool place to visit with it's incredible history, dining al fresco, and super nice people - I highly recommend visiting!
Here are 5 Things to Do in Athens 👇:
1. Visit the Acropolis
When you think of Athens, the acropolis is what you think of. Standing high above everything else in the city, it truly is an epic place. Get the combination ticket at Zeus' temple, so you don't have to wait in line at the Acropolis. Have fun admiring the Parthenon.
2. Greek Parliament
The old King of Greece's palace is now used as a government building in Athens. Stop by to see the grandeur and the changing of the guards every 30 minutes.
3. Visit the 1st Olympic Stadium
Stop by here or buy a ticket to wander inside the site of the first modern Olympic games in 1896. This is the only stadium made of marble. It sits on the site of an ancient stadium.
4. Eat Souvlaki
Souvlaki is like a gyro but with french fries inside. Being plant-based we were really hoping to find one we could try and we did! Peas is a 100% vegan restaurant that has THE BEST souvlaki in Athens (in my opinion). I also really love their desserts!
5. Try Ouzo
Ouzo is a distilled spirit made from grapes but tastes like black licorice. If you're in Greece and like to drink, you have to give this a try.
