Yes it's that dream trip which everyone of us wants to take atleast once in our lifetime. The Euro trip !! For all the budget travellers who wants to experience the luxury and feel the essence of the European continent - Visit Greece . It has a lot to offer - beautiful sunny beaches , white washed buildings on the cliff with caldera view , beautiful churches , amazing country side , historical monuments and what not , we can say it's " The Entire Europe in a nutshell".
Since we decided to travel in winters around February because it was our anniversary , so we opted for Athens and Santorini. We got some of the best flight deals in Skyscanner .
The cheapest way to travel in Athens is by metro , so do not forget to get a 5 day metro pass from the airport itself which will cost around 1800 INR per person. Google offline maps are your best friend in Greece where WiFi is weak in most of the places , hence navigation may get difficult sometimes.
We stayed at Cecil hotel in Monastiraki which costs 2500 INR per night . The best location to stay in Athens is undoubtedly Monastiraki or near Syntagma Square because all the famous historical monuments like Temple of Olympian Zeus , stadium , acropolis , theatre of dinosys , the flea markets , parliament building is just a walk away . A lot of cheap food options are available in Monastiraki , one of the must try snack is Souvlaki and for all the coffee lovers - the Greek coffee is heaven.
