Day 1 - Athens


Start at the Acropolis Metro Station and walk with the Acropolis to your back. Vyronos Street is the gateway to Plaka. Everything on this list can be reached on foot, but some of the streets are sloped upward and can be challenging if you have limited mobility.

Suggested Breaks: After hitting Ipollito's leather accessories boutique, order an ouzo sampler from Bretto's to keep in the shopping spirit, in more ways than one.

Time your day so that you can end with tea and cake at Belle Epoque. On Nikis Street, one street over, buy a few organic goodies for your hotel room before returning from your eventful day of splurging. After a little rest, head back out for an economically friendly meal at Yiasemi where all of the home cooked meals are five euros.
