3 Things you can’t miss in Athens,Greece!

Greece is a popular tourist destination yet people still struggle to have a good Greek experience.I’m going to be giving you some tips on where to go and what to do so that you don’t waste time stressing out during your vacation.

The ideal months to visit Greece in are August to November when it’s a little chilly but you can still feel the warmth.Athens Eleftherios Airport isn’t that big and you’ll be out in the city within the hour of your arrival~The people are extremely friendly and welcoming and are particularly fond of Pakistanis!

1.Malls you NEED to go to:-

i.Metro Mall

This mall is going to be the most humongous mall you’ve ever been to because it has 6 floors and at least 1500 shops including a whole shop dedicated to MAC products (You’re welcome Ladies!) The food court doesn’t have many halal restaurants so you should try the Margarita Pizza from the Pizza place.You can get 2 pizzas for 10 Euros only!

ii.THE MALL (Of Athens)

The quickest way to reach this mall is by Metro.If you take the metro,you’ll be able to see the Olympic Stadium as well! This mall is equally huge with amazing shopping awaiting you and brands like H&M,Zara,Pull & Bear and Inglot! What I miss about this mall only is the brownie I had for 3 Euros in the food court which was Huge,Gooey and extremely delicious!

2.Athens 1 Day Cruise.

This beautiful cruise that leaves the Port of Piraeus at the break of dawn is a must if you’re going to Athens.The Cruise is the ‘Anna Maru’ and it takes you to 3 different Islands like Aegina ,Hydra (Prononunced ee-drah) and Poros. The simplicity of the island life is so enchanting and strolling in the streets and soaking up Greek Culture is so relaxing!

3.The Parthenon on the Acropolis.

This beautifully preserved UNESCO Heritage Site should really be on your bucket list because any visit is incomplete without going here.This building is located on top of the Acropolis and if you’re visiting in October-November,be sure to take your jacket and camera because temperatures can fall to 11 degrees Celsius and the view of the whole city is just unbelievable! A visit to the Acropolis Museum later is also a good thing to do so that you know a little about Greek History!
