Spending a cloudy and rainy Feburary weekend might seem less than ideal, but in fact it’s the best way to discover the city: climbing the Acropolis hill without tourist masses, not sweating while exploring the tiny streets of the city center and having a good excuse to find shelter in the Acropolis Museum for hours.
The city itself offers quite an interesting mix of urban sceneries, especially when the ancient and new world collide.
The Acropolis Museum – built on top of an ancient settlement – is only a few years old by now and is definitely a big highlight to visit in Athens. You can easily spend a full day in this beautiful building, indulging in a vast collection of ancient relics and artifacts. A rainy day well spent!
Obviously the city has endless sights to visit. During a 3-day trip you can only see so much. A few more sightings of sights can look like this:
