The outside was the best part. The hotel felt run down, especially the rooms which had NO view (a brick wall and the local cats) and very noisy air con. Hotel position was rather a long way from the old centre of Athens though very convenient for the museum & a very nice square with variety of good restaurants. Breakfast on rooftop was adequate & staff were ok.

But still so fun to go to the top and see the Pantheon and the amazing views over Athens and the Aegean Sea. Most of the statues at the Acropolis are reproductions as ...

Paul met a nice taxi driver. He was insistent that we know "his city" and only the truth !!! A wise old man and really nice. he drove us around for about an hour and gave us his time and shared lots of great stories.

... had just brought in fresh fish from the markets and given neither Larn nor I eat seafood and really don’t appreciate the smell of it we decided to relocate to their tables in a covered area the other side of the footpath….. this was all fine except we had already ordered and by the time the waiter arrived with our food he was horrified by us moving as it was totally BUCKETING down with rain….. it was seriously pouring and another waiter had to get an ...
