There is so much to see and enjoy in Athens. Two days in Athens is certainly better than one, but three days is the minimum we recommend you stay. There are ancient historic sites, many museums, a vibrant nightlife, delicious food and such a friendly atmosphere that your trip here is sure to inspire you for years to come. If you are following this guide, you plan to visit the Acropolis on Day 1. Our Day 2 itinerary is a delightful potpourri of things to see and do in the center of Athens, perfect for the visitor in for the weekend or for a short stay.
