2 days in Athens for singles

Day 1

Begin your day early in the morning with a visit to Athens landmark, the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum (you will need at least 2 hours). Afterwards, have a quick coffee in the museum cafe-restaurant and enjoy the beautiful views. Continue with a nice walk to Dionysiou Areopagitou pedestrian Street and to the Ancient Agora. Wander through the narrow streets of Plaka and the open-air market in Monastiraki. You can stop at the ever-crowded Dioskouroi for coffee or ouzo with nibbles, or anything else that might take your fancy. Continue your walk to Psiri, along the beautiful Pittaki Street, thanks to its great lighting and try cocktails at A for Athens. In the afternoon you can enjoy shopping and an aperitif in Kolonaki. In the evening make a reservation at a restaurant of your choice with a view of the Acropolis or perhaps a wine bar in the centre, the new trend in the city. Brettos Bar in Plaka is one of the best choices and you can continue to enjoy the vibrant nightlife in the center of the city (Gazi, Monastiraki and Karitsi Square) before ending your nightlife experience at the “bouzoukia” on Iera Odos.

Day 2

Get over the hangover of the previous day with coffee by the sea in Flisvos Marina. Take the tram and head for the cosmopolitan Glyfada. Young people fill the main streets all day long for coffee, shopping, lunch or simply walks. You can enjoy lunch here in one of the various eateries in the area (e.g. Vincenzo, Tartare, Hama) or go to Mikrolimano for fresh fish. End your day at Piraeus Sailing Club and enjoy a cocktail and, of course, the view of the sea!
