Out and About in Athens
If you land one of Athens hotels near Avissinias Square, you can immediately immerse yourself in the entirety of Athenian culture by visiting this market. You'll find everything from antiques to beautiful custom jewelry. If you snag a necklace portraying your favorite Greek god or goddess, feel free to show it off while visiting the Parthenon or the Acropolis of Athens, then check out the Athens War Museum. Once you've had your fill of ancient ruins and Greek history, head over to the Attica Zoological Park or enjoy a show at the National Theatre of Greece.
Eating and Drinking
Finding cheap hotels in Athens should be a priority well before you board a plane -- you'll want as much money in your wallet as possible for enjoying the city's dining and beverage options.
