Seven Things for mature visitors to do in Athens in September

  1. IMG_7990On your first full day use the Hop On Hop Off Bus to get an overview of the city and acclimatise yourself to the temperature …it will still be very hot during mid day, it hovered around the 32c mark when I visited.
  2. Plan to visit the ancient library, agora and Roman agora on the same day as they are close together and also near a hop on hop off bus stop.
  3. Wander the streets of Athens taking care of belongings. Explore the narrow alleyways in the Plaka district.
  4. Eat Moussaka……. I really enjoyed the quality found at God’s Restaurant near  The Acropolis . 
  5. Try a Greek coffee at a pavement cafe and people watch.
  6. See the Changing of the Guard at 11am on Sunday morning, arrive early at the Parliamentary Building.
  7. Climb the acropolis to see the Parthenon and see some great views over  Athens early evening as the temperature drops.

  1. Its always worth doing those Hop On Hop Off buses wherever you go isnt it? Always great for getting your bearings and getting an idea of where you want to visit. Always thought Athens looked interesting.
