2. Athens

I’ve heard many Greeks referring to Athens as a pretty ugly city with a lot of beautiful corners and, yes, there is some truth in that. Not every part of it is breathtaking but the ones that are, are indeed magical and, in the end of the day, that’s still the only thing that counts – doesn’t it? Visit the Acropolis as well as The New Acropolis Museum and then take a walk through Plaka and Monastiraki, some of the most colorful places I’ve seen in my life.
