AthenaHello ladies! My name is Athena. I'm born and raised in Greece. Ive travelled quite a lot when I was young, because my dad worked as an electrician for big cruise ship companies (free vacations yayy🥂😁) I unfortunately dont remember many of the places though. As an adult I've traveled on my own, in the uk, france, italy. My next trip is in Ibiza🍹 I'm a bit of an introvert and I do enjoy solo traveling, however I want to push my self and get to know more people. That's where you come in. Lets connect💙

It’s the first place I went to totally on my own and I found it really safe and it was perfect as I was super nervous at the idea of travelling solo even though I have loads of friends who had done it. But I’d definitely go back again and next time I want to use it as a base that I can do some longer day trips from.Posted: April 30, 2023
Athens was my first solo adventure. I found Greece to be a wonderful first solo experience, people were always helpful and it's such a beautiful country. I also was dealing with a lot of emotions when I went so I certainly found myself. Athens gave me the urge to want to explore more cities alone. I couldn't have thought of a better country to start solo traveling.Posted: April 11, 2023
I found it a wonderful place to be a solo female traveller. Most people know English, transportation is easy to figure out, the food is wonderful, and there’s so much history and culture to take in.Posted: March 26, 2023
Athens is safe but beware of the pickpockets. I felt safe walking around. Public transportation is reliable and accessible. I was there for over a week last Summer all by myself staying in a hotel in the city, overlooking the Acropolis. it was an amazing trip. Tips: In summer it is extremely hot and humid.Posted: March 25, 2023
I did Athens solo. I loved the restaurant and bar on the top floor of the Electra Metropolis Hotel. I took a great free walking tour that did neighborhoods and markets. I found it in trip advisor and it was one of my favorite things. So many cute neighborhoods and restaurants.Posted: December 10, 2022
I loved Athens. I could spend a month there easily. I only had about 6-7 days there. So much to see and experience. I loved the whole feel of it, the people, the culture, the history, the food, the bars, the markets. All so wonderful.Posted: December 3, 2022
There are many places to visit in Athens or around Athens (suburbs, Greek Riviera, Sounio etc). Also many museums! Of course visit the Acropolis (also the museum), the national gallery, Stavros Niarchos foundation and many other. You must taste mousaka, pastitisio, fried zucchini and eggplant, gyros, souvlaki, pies, loukoumades, galaktompoureko and many more. Ask a local where to eat! Don't go to the fully touristic area if you want to eat really good food. Visit the islands nearby like Spetses, Hydra, Aegina.Posted: October 29, 2022
Things to do: acropolis museum, the acropolis, the plaka, sounion, Delphi, take a ferry from rafina to the closest Greek island and spend the day there. Food: Eat a meal at a taverna, drink ouzo, retsina. Overall: I meet wonderful people and ate wonderful food.Posted: October 22, 2022
Itinerary: I've spent 4 days in Athens Things to do: I visited Acropolis, Parthenon, Plaka, Mount Lycabettus, Psiri, Panathenaic Stadium, Herod Atticus Odean, Anafiotika and Central Market. Food: Food was delicious and locals were friendly. Safety: I felt very safe, even at night when I got lost. Recommendations: I would highly recommend Athens for those who love architecture and history. The traffic here is horrendous so metro or walking is a great idea.Posted: October 13, 2022
Things to do: Places I have visited and recommend: - Plaka, the old town of Athens - The Acropolis of Athens - Little Kook street - Lake Vouliagmeni - Kalamaki Beach - Lycabettus hill Safety: Athens is very safe, except pickpocketing. Recommendations: If you visit Athens, don’t miss the Anafiotika neighborhood between Plaka and the Acropolis. The winding streets and stone houses are historic, beautiful and full of life. It’s one of the most scenic areas in all of Athens and well worth an afternoon of exploring. Just wear good shoes, the ancient stone walkways are very slippery.Posted: August 13, 2022
