We (four of us) are first time visitors to Greece. Prior to a seven day island cruise, we will have three full days to visit Athens. Interested in any suggestions from those more seasoned Athens visitors for places to visit in those three days. Is two days enough and then plan a day trip outside the city?
Day 1 is with "Athens City Walk" and includes in 5.5 hours:
Monument of the Unknown Soldier, etc.
Temple of Zeus
Day 2 and 3 on our own - using RS Pocket Athens and other resources I would probably include:
Old Town and Souvlaki Row
Ancient Agora (if not included in Athens City Tour)
More National Gardens (?)
Acropolis Loop (ofcourse)
Central Market (hotel is near here so will probably visit several times)
We like food, drink and night life. After Acropolis and Agora and upcoming islands, probably do not need additional ancient sites.
With above draft agenda (Athens City Tour is cast in stone) are there any suggestions of things to drop or any suggestions of sites to add.
As always, appreciate any experienced Athens input.
