Acropolis is considered the highest point in ancient Greece, though it’s only 156 meters high. When you reach the Parthenon at the summit, you will definitely be able to look at all the breathtaking monuments that are built on its side and the modern side of Athens.

Parthenon

This is one of the most famous buildings in Athens and the whole of Greece. It is found at the top of Acropolis and is the epitome of the Doric architecture. It is quite historical and important in Greece because it was built to honor the famous goddess known as Athena Parthenos who protected the city during the Persian Wars.

Plaka

It is unique, with beautiful sceneries and several cafes, stone walkways and ancient trees.

Theatre of Dionysus

If you are mad about theatre, you are in luck! The Theatre of Dionysus is where you need to visit. Being the oldest theatre in Greece, most of the famous Greek comedies and tragedies were debuted on its incredible stage.

Unbelievably, this was originally a temple that was built in the sixth century BC. It is dedicated to Dionysus, the god of wine and merriment.

The National Garden

This has to be the most serene location in Athens. Spend time as a couple at the National Garden, and experience the most beautiful and sunny afternoons. You shall not forget it. Picture this; taking a walk hand in hand in a quiet and peaceful place that is away from the bustling city.

You will find The Royal garden here, which is a little piece of heaven, as it is the garden for the Royal Palace.

A vibrant plant life and beautiful canopy trees awaits you and your loved one. There are flower beds with beautiful flowers and statues decorating the gardens with small ruins of antiquity. It’s truly unforgettable.

Monastiraki

If you love to shop ’till you drop, then, Monastiraki is the place for you. It is a huge market in the historic Athens district. On weekdays, it is quiet with a few shops selling souvenirs, but on the weekends, it transforms into a flea market.

You will find vendors selling everything from carpets, antiques, junk, etc. You can shop for everything and anything at this market, or just sit by a nearby café and observe. But no one goes to Monastiraki to watch. Get in the mix and buy yourself some souvenirs. I mean how else will you boast that you visited Athens?
