My tired legs didn’t stop at the Mount Lycabettus, because now my heart raced excitedly at the prospect of watching the sun rise over the mountain, next morning. So on the following day, I was all set for an early start while the city slept soundly. I made my way to the Acropolis and finally to the Parthenon of Goddess Athena, from where I could see the mountain in the distance and a most perfectly timed sunrise around 7:15am. This visit to Athens had robbed me off my wealth, but in return it had rewarded me with what nobody can take from me. Epiphanies that were mine and mine alone. I think, I now know for certain that there is greater good beyond anything that seems formidable! :):)
Where to stay:
I booked my accommodation via Booking.com in the Kimon Athens Hotel (much in advance). It was extraordinarily comfortable for the 22 euros/day and right in the heart of the city :) I usually prefer hostels, but Greece was my last destination after 15 days of non-stop travel across 5 countries in Europe and I needed the comfort of an independent room! :):)
Its really easy to walk around Athens. Also, you don't want to miss out on the crazy amount of entertainment on the streets. Don't worry about the heat. There's a Greek yogurt shop around every corner ;)
i.Be a little alert with respect to your belongings
ii.The Greek temples close down by 3 pm, so start early! :)
iii. Buy the Acropolis ticket for 12 euros. Acropolis is the complex which houses the ruins of all these historical temples. This ticket is much cheaper than buying the entry ticket into all of the sights separately.
2 days and 2 nights.
