1. Acropolis Hill

If there is one thing you should do in Athens, that is to visit the prominent rock of Acropolis Hill. Acropolis Hill used to be the largest and most stunning structural complex in Ancient Greece, reaching its peak in the 5th century BC.

Nearby, you will also see the temples of Erechtheion, Athena Nike, Propylaea, the Theater of Dionysus Eleuthereus, and various monuments from the Roman era.

Areopagus Hill in the Acropolis of Athens

At the northwest exit of Acropolis stands the low rocky hill of Areopagus or Mars Hill. Why should you climb Areopagus Hill?

To begin with, it is a wonderful (yet quite slippery) high spot to take stunning photos of the Acropolis. The 115-meter-high rock was also the place in Ancient Greece where cases of premeditated murder, arson, and sacrilege were trialed.

Finally, around 49 CE, Apostle Paul during his second missionary trip, gave the famous speech to the Unknown God mentioned in Bible Acts 17:23. At the entrance of the Areopagus Hill, close to the stairs, stands today a stone inscription of his speech to the Athenians.

Temple of Olympian Zeus, Adrian’s Gate, and Panathenaic Stadium on the left

Zeus was the king of gods in ancient Greek religion ruling everyone from the top of Olympus Mount in the north of Greece. To honor him, the Greeks had erected quite a few temples in their city-states.

The Temple dedicated to Zeus in Athens, also called Olympeio, started being built by tyrant Pisistratos in the 6th century BC but the construction stopped when he died.

The philosopher Aristotle in his book Politika uses this temple as an example of how tyrannical regimes force the population to engage in huge projects, leaving them with no time, energy, and ways to respond.

Temple of Olympian Zeus

The works resumed 400 years later while Macedonian king Antiochos was in charge but soon (in 164 BCE) they stopped again. Finally, the temple was completed in 132 CE by the Roman Emperor Hadrian who was a great lover of Greek civilization. Nearby stands also the Hadrian Gate.

Entrance ticket: €8 in summer, €4 in winter, included in the €30 combo ticket.

Byzantine and Christian Museum

17. Find out about Varvakios Agora

The fish part of Varvakios

When I was little, every Saturday my mother and I would take the bus, and half an hour later we would reach the ‘Agora’. This is where we would buy our Sunday meat or fish and other goods that we couldn’t find in our local groceries, long before the supermarkets were everywhere close to us.

Herbs and nuts in Varvakios

Varvakios Agora, which remains quite unchanged today, is the central market point for everything when it comes to fresh meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, eggs, cheese, herbs, and nuts. All kinds of people will be there in a loud, colorful, filled with strong smells of raw meat and fish place, giving the sense that you are in Anatolia rather than in a European country.

Entrance to the tavern Diporto | Things to Do in Athens

All around and inside the Agora, you will find taverns that only locals go to. My favorite one is Diporto, a 150-year-old underground tavern at Sokratous 9 & Theatrou, with the best traditional food in Athens.

18. Have a Cocktail at a Rooftop Bar

360 Cocktail bar

One of the best things you can do in Athens is to discover the many rooftops with bars and restaurants all around the center with stunning Acropolis views. Some of the best rooftop bars can be found on top of hotels such as Grande Bretagne, King George, or Niche Hotel.

Alternatively, you can go to cafes/bars/restaurants that have rooftops with an Acropolis view. The downside is that they are very popular and not easy to find a good seat. Some of my favorite rooftop bars are:

  • 360 Cocktail bar, Ifestou 2 st. Monastiraki
  • City Zen, Mitropoleos 80 in Monastiraki
  • Couleur Locale, Normanou 3, Monastiraki
  • Anglais Athens, 6, Kirykeiou street & Mitropoleos, Monastiraki

  3. Antilippery shoes with traction – You’ll be walking over slippery stones and marble, uphills, and downhills that have been worn down by feet for thousands of years. Make sure your shoes are comfortable for walking.
  4. Anti-theft handbag or backpack – Athens is mostly a safe city, save for petty theft and pickpocketing. You need to mind your belongings in Athens, especially in crowded squares and on the metro.

When is Best to Go to Greece

Greece has 4 distinct seasons with considerable temperature differences if you are in Thessaloniki in the north or Crete in the south. The islands never close, they have permanent residents but they are at their liveliest between May and September.

The peak season in Greece is from July to August, and the islands can get very busy and crowded. The sea water is at its warmest (25-28 C) in August and September. I love exploring the islands in the off-season, and that means that there will be hotels, cafes, and taverns working, but it will be quiet with just the permanent residents.

Chania Crete

If you’re seeking to escape your country’s colder weather, celebrate Christmas, indulge in hiking, and explore archaeological sites with fewer crowds and at discounted rates, I recommend visiting Greece during December, January, and February. Discover what to do in one of Greece’s warmest winter destinations by exploring Crete Island in the winter.
