Thira Souvlaki

Great restaruant serving up dirt-cheap souvlaki and gyros at about one euro each. The souvlaki and gyros are the best I had in any of Greece.

The Acropolis of Athens

Attraction | "Acropolis"

Quote:
The Acropolis is probably one of the best (and only?) reasons to visit Athens. Although the monuments on top are beautiful, most are under construction to be renovated. Aside from the various scaffolding, the Acropolis is easily a full day trip.
