Athens’ Hidden Hotspots

I didn’t expect much from Athens. Most of my friends had either not spent much time in the city on their way to the islands (as most people do), or they just didn’t enjoy their time.

Or, as I like to think, they just didn’t find the right places. What I love about Athens is that it’s unashamedly Athens – it has no pretensions, and it doesn’t pretend to be anything it isn’t. What you see is what you get.

I hired a private guide from Athens Insiders because big cities scare the crap out of me and I felt like paying for someone to be my friend would be a good idea. I was right. My guides Daphne and Anthia showed me THEIR Athens and then made me comfortable enough with the city to do some exploring on my own.
