National Archaeological Museum

Greece is rightly proud of its flagship museum which is an extensive collection and is housed in the heart of Athens. The true museum junkie should allow two to three hours for a brief dazzling visit. Do confuse this museum with the National Gallery which is also fascinating and covers the rest of Greece.

Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon

This is one of those spots that are as much favorite with the locals, especially in the afternoon, as it is with the tourists. It is a favorite sunset-viewing spot for everyone and gives you classically Greek moment against the ruined monument along with a terrific sea view. While it is possible to visit Sounion by public bus from Athens, most visitors prefer to drive or to take an organized tour. You can book one directly ahead of your trip through your hotel or by visiting any travel agency in Athens.

Athens streets

Athens Greece is one of the safest capital cities in the world in which common sense is your best defense anywhere, because statistically, you are far safer on the streets of Athens at night than in London, Paris, or Tokyo. If you prefer, get out there and enjoy yourself.

Piraeus

Slip away to Piraeus, easily reachable by the Metro, and have dinner at one of the pricy but charming seaside taverns of Microlimano. Piraeus, the port city of Athens, is not quite a Greek island, but it will do. Allow yourself extra time and stop by the excellent Nautical Museum. Enquire the prices as you also take an Open-topped bus tour between both Athens and Piraeus.

Lycabettus Hill

Lycabettus hills gives you the best rise up especially on hot days, you can cool your self on its stony outcrops of Acropolis which seem to be neither too warm nor too bright. You can get t the top by using the tubular rail car that lets you escape the intense heat and the crowded tourist spots. (image by :  Amol Panchabhai )
