    Hi Gajaba,

    You can't miss the Acropolis of Athens and all the ruins around that area. Plaka is an interesting area to wander around and is full of places to eat and drink at night. Eat lots of yummy Greek food and chat to the locals, they are passionate, friendly people who love a chat.

    Have fun!

    Cheers

    Jen

    Visit the Areopagus (Mars Hill), which is right next to the Acropolis. It was the meeting place of an aristocratic council, and also the spot where the Apostle Paul introduced Christianity to the Athenians.

    On one side of the Areopagus, you get a stunning view of Athens and the sunset.

    On the other side, you can see the entrance to the Acropolis.

    AreopagusThe Areopagus is a big piece of uneven marble, so I suggest wearing shoes if you decide to go.

    In addition to the Areopagus and Acropolis, there are a few other places and things you could see that are all fairly close together:


    Have fun!
