I will be traveling to Greece for a field school this summer, and I am trying to plan time to sightsee before and after the school.
I plan to stay in Athens at the end of June for 3 days before the school, and then see Delphi and Hydra as well as Athens on the second leg when I have 6 to 7 days before leaving Greece.
I am looking to find hotels - especially in Athens - that are relatively simple, in a safe neighborhood of the city, and offer private rooms with their own bathroom. I am definitely hoping to be within "walking distance" of major attractions.
This is my first time travelling abroad alone and I would love any guidance or suggestions anyone can offer on picking a decently priced place in a safe neighborhood. Thank you in advance!
