We spent two short days in Greece. One full day in Athens and another day taking a trip out the the close islands. We spent a majority of our Europe trip in Italy, but wanted to get a feel for Greece too. I definitely want to come back to the main islands, Mykonos and Santorini.


Wow, it’s hard to put into words seeing some of this ancient history!

Walk the Ruins

Use your guidebook to do a self-guided walk through the ruins. We walked here from our hotel and spent at least five-six hours walking through the ruins. The area is huge! We didn’t grab lunch until 4 PM.

Visit Restaurant Row 

IMG_1665Of course, you have to try the souvlaki. Keep in mind, if you sit down, they charge you more of your meal vs. doing take away. We didn’t know this until the bill arrived. It was nice to rest our feet tho!







Enjoy Spanakopita 

IMG_1752Yum! That’s all I have to say. We loved it so much, we make it for pot luck parties here.
