8:00am – Get to the Acropolis right when the gates open to avoid the crowds and get some good pictures. Grab at map at the entry gate to be sure you don’t miss anything!
10:00am – Grab a coffee at the base of the Acropolis and spend some time exploring Historic Plaka as the shops are opening up.
11:00am – Go to the Acropolis Museum. Be sure to check out the live excavation sites through the glass floor outside the entrance.
1:00pm – Grab some lunch in Plaka. Order a gyro and some Horiataki (Greek Salad).
3:00pm – Head East from the Acropolis to see the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Keep walking until you come to a large, busy road and you’ll see the monument directly on the other side of it. You can’t miss it!
5:00pm – Walk back to the Metro through the National Garden and settle in for an afternoon nap. You’re probably exhausted.
8:00pm – Wake up, get dressed, and head out for dinner. Ask your hotel concierge for recommendations, or check out the incredible food at Geros Tou Moria in Plaka, complete with dancing and breaking plates (NOTE: They bring out special plates for you to break, don’t just start chucking dinnerware around).
10:00pm – Take an evening stroll around Monastiraki or Plaka. Grab a glass of red wine or enjoy a nightcap.
