Athens. – I spent five days in Athens to attend the TBEX Europe, staying in a gorgeous Airbnb just off the centre and with a couple of days on the end to walk the city. A favourite thing to do wherever I visit. It truly is a place that took me by surprise. I felt very much at home here with the pastel-toned hues, secret gardens archeological sites, significant history, cool restaurants and coffee shops. All manned by impressive looking hipsters. The fashion, street art and yogurt smothered in honey.
On my last day Trafalgar Tours offered me a guided visit to the Acropolis and an afternoon of additional insight into this place where democracy was born. It certainly brought the Athens magic to life. Here is a look at some of the sights and sounds.
I wrote a piece for the Travelstart blog which I introduce here – Just 48 Hours in Athens. Of Old and New.
