One day in Athens is one day too many. Actually, if you’ve never been to Athens and you love history, then you need at least one or two day to visit the ruins. If you’ve been here before, then it’s just a city with nothing exciting or interesting to see. I stayed in the city center (walkable to the Acropolis). I decided to walk to dinner And it was a bit ominous. It was a nice restaurant (a bit hipster) but the walk was scary, people doing drugs, shooting up for all to see. There were other questionable parts of the walk but that was the saddest. I needed to stop in Athens to catch an international flight to Spain, so next time, I’ll just stay in a hotel close to the airport. I usually enjoy visiting big cities, but this city was nothing to write home about - it was expensive and on the dirty side.
