Things to do
The Perfect Day

Morning

Begin at imposing Syntagma Square and from there stroll along Panepistimiou Avenue, lined with beautiful neoclassical buildings that house the University of Athens, the Academy of Arts and the National Library. Head to Karagiorgi Servias Street to find the city's finest confiserie, Aristokratikon and try its specialty, pistachio-nut sticks, perfect gifts to take home. Continue to Eolou Street and discover the Agia Irini neighborhood, a vibrant area with cafes, bars and restaurants. Stop at Krinos for a plate of traditional loukoumades (honey and cinnamon doughnuts).

Afternoon

Start at Kolonaki, Athens's most sophisticated fashion district packed with designer boutiques and famous galleries. In the cafes of the central square, Athenians enjoy coffee while people-watching. The most popular is Da Capo, where the hardest thing to find is an empty chair. After your coffee, browse the stylish boutiques in the surrounding streets before heading to Mount Lycabetus for spectacular views of the city. It's a 45 minute climb to the top, but if you'd rather not walk there is a funicular that goes up to the summit where you may visit the tiny chapel of St George and, upon descending, stop at the famous Benaki Museum.

Evening

Start with a pleasant stroll along the pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou. As you walk towards the Thission area, admire the 150 metre high 'sacred rock' of the Acropolis, the most important site in the city. Enjoy a drink in one of its numerous buzzing bars. After this, walk around the Ancient Agora and along Adrianou street until you reach Plaka. Athens oldest and mainly pedestrianized neighborhood where you will find the largest selection of traditional Greek tavernas for dinner.
