Tips and tricks
The best time to travel to Athens is the off-season. It’s too hot here in summer, and winters are quite rainy. But in autumn and spring the city pleases all the travelers with a mild climate.
Don’t go shopping on Sunday. And on weekdays, it is better to shop in the morning: some stores close in the afternoon.
Be sure to stop by the Loukoumades café located at Eolou 21. You will definitely like the traditional Greek dessert (deep-fried donuts with honey and cinnamon).
In order to buy souvenirs, head to the central Athens neighborhoods—Plaka and Monastiraki. Here you will find a flea market and lots of shops with jewelry, original works of art, antiquities, as well as clay and leather goods.

we had more opportunities in exploring the city: we choose locations for visiting and made frequent stops. We also were pleased with the tinted windows of the car and the air conditioner - they just saved us in the summer heat
