One day in Athens was enough time for us to see everything that we had wanted to see, but we both felt that another day to explore other parts of the city would have been nice. On our way back from sightseeing we walked through some small streets in the downtown area that were filled with local restaurants and shops. Everyone seemed to be getting out of work and enjoying happy hour on the outdoor patios. Unfortunately, we were exhausted from a day of walking all over the city to see the sights… plus we had a very early flight to Santorini the next morning. Either way, we still felt like we had seen quite a bit in Athens and were ready to enjoy some relaxation in Santorini. Here are some of our favorite photos from our day in Athens.
