Athens, Greece

Updated: Jul 5, 2023

The birthplace of democracy, Athens, Greece! It really is hard to put how amazing this city is into words but I'll try and take a crack at it here. From the food to the history, this place will keep you wanting to come back time and time again.

Views: 4/5

Experience the stunning views of Athens from the rooftop of the 360 Cocktail Bar. From there, you can gaze over Monastriaki Square and the Acropolis, and it's truly breathtaking. But it's when you climb up to the Acropolis that the view becomes even more expansive, and you can see for miles over the city. It's an experience that will make you realize you're officially in Greece.

Food: 5/5

Wine: 3.5/5

Greek cuisine is undoubtedly some of the best in the world, whether you're dining at a small family-owned eatery or a high-end restaurant. The food is always fresh and delicious, and there's a wide variety of dishes to try. You can keep coming back to Greece and never tire of the cuisine.

As for Greek wine, it can be an acquired taste. While we enjoyed some bottles, others didn't quite appeal to our palates. We suggest experimenting with the different regions that produce wine in Greece to find the one that suits you best.

City Safeness/ Upkeep: 4.5/5

Athens is a safe city, and taking normal safety precautions will ensure a comfortable visit. However, it is best to avoid government buildings at night, particularly on weekends, as protests can occur in these areas. Despite the city's worn appearance and abundance of graffiti, it is safe once you look past the initial impression.

Overall Rating: 4.8/5

Athens will definitely blow you away the moment you get there. It's an amazing city that you could spent months wandering around and getting lost in just the food alone. The people are amazing and you will always want to keep going back!
