Your Athens City questions, answered

There's no bad time to visit, but the crowds thin out come October/November, meaning you’re able to explore Athens relatively undisturbed.
Don't leave without trying a koulouri sesame seed bread ring, a galaktoboureko custard-filled flaky pastry and a souvlaki kebab.
You'll be able to see a lot on foot but there's also the metro, bus and tram to help you get around.
