Marina Zeas in Praeus and Lycabbettus hill is must to see
The traffic is a chaos
I’ve travelled to Greece from the UK to see my girlfriend as she lives in Athens .
I’ve arrived quite late at night as my flight was delayed, I had no problems going through the customs . Even though it was late in the night as soon as I’ve come out of the airport i could feel the hot weather it was like walking into a oven , every one who visited UK must know it’s pretty cold and miserable so you can imagine how nice it was walking out to nice warm weather.
During my stay my girlfriend show me around the city , it’s a very large crowded city , I wasn’t really fan of the traffic but once you arrived to your location it’s worth the hustle, they have so many nice shops , tavernas with people sitting outside eating and drinking, live traditional music every where also there are lots of old structures left from ancient times.
Also I couldn’t believe that people were going out around 10-11 pm to have a drink and something to eat . People are very friendly and helpful, the service is excellent in the tavernas , you can sit and eat or just enjoy drink , there is no rush you can stay all night eating and drinking.
