Things to do in Athens

The must see tourist attraction in Athens has to be the Acropolis. It is an ancient citadel situated on a rocky outcrop above Athens.

The Acropolis contains the remains of several buildings of architectural and historic significance including the most well known, The Parthenon.

Another favourite attraction while in Athens, is to see the changing of the guard at the Presidential Mansion.

Many people smile at the ritual, but these guards are part of a tough elite light infantry unit called the Evezone’s.

After you’ve traipsed around the attractions there’s plenty of shopping available…
