... the other guards foot with their foot.
Hilarious! Surprisingly, they encourage people to pose with the
guards and take photos. The plan was to go to the Roman Agora and
Ancient agora, but again we'd run out of time, so we went to the
shopping district and looked around. I wanted to buy a new suitcase

After talking to a few random people renting rooms who flagged me down, I settled on a nice room with my own bathroom and a, albeit non-working, washing machine. And a half bottle of ouzo.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAmalia Hotel Athens
Nice hotel situated right in the heart of Athens.
Room was spacious but we did pay for a deluxe room.
Breakfasts were good but cooked items EG egg and bacon were always cold.
Internet service was poor considering that they charged Five euros for each 24 hrs.
