Taking the 'fast train' (as it is known locally) to Athens was a real treat for our family as we have been on many long and uncomfortable bus rides. Although comfortable in our train berths we were anxious about coming to Athens. So much is on the news about the problems in Greece and Athens is the ‘melting pot’ of all the unrest. …

... entertainers and beggars would line up to take their share of the salaries of the working class. Later, around 400 A.D., the building became a shopping center for the Athenians. Dr. Camp noted that the enterprising businessman of Athens would have had to take advantage of the weak municipal authority in Athens after the Visigoths arrived to set up these shops, as it was previously illegal to privately section off parts of a public building.

... rain! On the way the girls saw a jewelery shop and jokingly pointed it out to me.. I said.. "no more jewelery" but as GJ had entered the shop hoping to buy herself a ring I just had to wander in for a look.. that was my first mistake!! Deb and GJ are such bad influences on me as they egged me on to buy not only the bracelet I was looking at but another and also a ring to match!! I had all 4 sales girls running around getting things out to show me... must have made their ...

Quick overnight stop in Athens

A travel blog entry by travelintommy

We spent the night in Athens, but got up early to head to the port to sail to our next destination. But, we'll be back in Athens on Monday to do our exploring there. No pictures for this stop since we got in late and leaving early but wanted the entry for the pin on the map. Lots of pictures of Athens when we return.

The Agora and more main sites of Athens

... through the fence, then up the Pnyx, where we received a beautiful view of the Acropolis. The Pnyx itself is not terribly interesting, although it is nice to stand in a place and think, "This is sort of the birth place of democracy in the Western world, or at least the way we acknowledge it. Socrates was imprisoned over there. For thinking differently."

From the Pnyx, we walked down to the entrance of the Acropolis, then climbed the ...

We found this hotel that fit our budget but after booking were scared after reading many reviews that made it out to be the worst place in the world. After contacting the hotel owner (Mike) I was reassured that my family would be safe, clean and cool (our criteria).

I told my family we should try it one night and then if necessary we will move for the other 4 nights. To our surprise the rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were spotless. The rooms were safe and the building is controlled by CCTV. We were not the only ones that found Athens House Hostel acceptable - 3 nights in the row I found 4-6 people sleeping in the lobby when I got up at 5am to write. Rooms were full, people friendly and helpful.

We also liked the fact that we could walk to all the sites, stores and restaurants.

This is the best priced, safest, cleanest centrally located hotel/hostel you can find in Athens!!

We were glad to have included this for 5 days of our Around the World in 80 Days trip! http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blog/maaske/6/tpod.html
