So if you’re talking about getting your money’s worth, the Acropolis is definitely top of that list. If you want a time of peace and relaxation or you’re looking for a quiet romantic walk with your partner, then set out to spend your time in Athens’ open spaces like the National Garden. It’s a perfect haven for everyone, both young and old. You can enjoy strolling along the Pedio Areos, which is the city’s biggest park and was just recently restored. Or you can go to the Ancient Agora’s South-westernmost part where you can find the Thissio Park, which is one of the locals’ favorite places to visit. Leaving the city without experiencing the Greek folk dance is a mistake. Enough with the sight-seeing! It’s time to live through the Greek culture.
