What's Athens Like?

While Athens is known for its remarkable history and ancient ruins, it's also an ideal place for food lovers. A typical day in Athens begins with a cup of coffee. Find a respected shop and prepare to wait as each cup is meticulously mixed and brewed. Don't be afraid to have only coffee as you start the day. Wander around until you find a shop selling another traditional breakfast item: yogurt smothered in nuts and honey. After you lick your lips, visit a museum or historic site. The Parthenon is a good choice. Then hit up a street market for a snack of olives or fruit. Shop a little for trinkets before your midday meal. For lunch, find a souflaki stand, where you'll savor a fried pita bread disc covered in pork or beef, with veggies on top. After walking off this meal, return to your Athens hotel for a little nap. If it's a pleasant night, head out to catch a show at one of Athens' many open-air cinemas. If it's after nine at night when the show lets out, so what? Athens doesn't come alive until the sun goes down, and many residents don't eat their suppers until after ten. After a pleasant meal of shellfish and other fresh seafood delights, dance a little, then head back to your room to rest up for another exciting day in Athens.
