Hello, I am planning on spending 4 days in Athens in early October. This will be one of my destinations on a 6 week backpacking trip. I am 23 years old and have spent a lot of time traveling alone - am aware of pick pocketing, etc. However I am unfamiliar with Athens so any additional advice would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

We plan to land in Athens, not know yet if it will be afternoon or early at night...we plan to have a booked car waiting for us, and as we will visit (again) Athens during the final leg of our trip...start our trip to the Peloponnesus.
We would like to do a short drive that first night...maybe 70 or 90 kilometres...if we can reach to any interesting village or city. So the morning after we wíll skip the Athens madness traffic and we would like to enjoy a relaxed morning touring that interesting village/city...so...what do you think?
Thanks a lot!

Thank you very much for your help.
Is it safe to travel alone at night (23) using the metro in Athens? (From city center)
I'm visiting Athens for the first time, and I'd like to know if there are any good clubs around to dance in this season. Preferably Rock and/or metal music, but not a total must. Maybe meet some nice people (local & tourists) who'd like to hang out and have a good time :)
Did anyone shop in a fine jewelry store in the Plaka where the sales lady's name was Vasso? I bought a bracelet from her that I love at a very good price and lost it. Would love to replace it. Thanks.
where in athens can you go to a nice beach with sand? thank you.
We want to go see the following:
National Archeological Museum.
How easy is it to go to those places on your own. Athens is just our cruise stop over and they just have a shuttle that would drop us off to the Syntagma Square and then we're on our own from there. We decided not to book their tours and thinking it might be cheaper if we just go on our own.
Any tips will be very much appreciated.
My husband and I are traveling to Athens within the next few months. I feel absolutely silly even asking this but I recently had a few people mention an increase in violence against tourist/people of color. We are a bi-racial couple and have traveled the world together. We have received looks/snide remarks both at home and in many trips over seas. All of that- we can handle and truly doesn't bother us in the least. That being said, the threat of violence against my husband because of the color of his skin physically makes me sick. I know the risk of this isn't specific to Greece BUT I just had to ask for guidance from you all. In your opinion am I being neurotic or has there been an increase in violence of this type, enough to be cause for concern on our trip? I sincerely apologize if this sound ridicoulos, I mean zero disrespect! Thank you in advance!
First time visiting Athens.....what would you do?
Hi, my flight from Athens to Crete has been changed so we'll have to spend the night in Athens mid-July. Is there a cheap hotel that's not too far from the airport? How frequent are buses/taxis and how much might they cost? Thanks in advance!
Has anyone booked ferry tickets from this website:
if so how easy it to collect the tickets at the port? since the first ferry leaves at 7:30 how soon we should be at the port?do they maintain time ?since coming back from island time is at 23:15, I am just afraid we may not get metro.
thanks for responses.
we have an early morning flight from ATH(6AM) to US change plane at Rome. can anybody suggest some hotels close to airport. Since we will have to be at the airport at atleast 4AM. From citycentre it will be difficult and take more time to go by taxi. Taxies may also charge more since it is before 6AM. Please suggest some alternatives if there aren't any hotels near by. Thanks a lot for your responses in advance.
Hi, which area do you recommend to stay?
Will need to get to Lavrion to join a yacht for island hopping. Can I get info on travel options? I am booked into Athens hotel for two nights prior so will be leaving, I assume, from Syntagma Square. Was wondering about bus number that I will need to catch.
Would you recommend renting a car to travel from Athens to Nafplia or should we take a bus? We also plan to visit Momnevasia
Does anyone know if you can store luggage easily at the airport? Is it expensive? We'll fly into Athens on an international flight, then immediately travel to some islands, later flying back into Athens on a domestic flight. We were thinking of leaving a piece of luggage at the airport which we wouldn't need until returning to Athens after our island hopping. However, are the domestic flight arrivals far away from the international arrivals? If we stored our luggage near the international arrival area, we would have to go back to retrieve it upon returning via domestic flight arrivals. Is it a huge airport?
Thank you for your help!
We will spend some time in Athens, and are staying in the area of Koukaki. We have 4 people, and will have some laundry to do; it is probably too many pieces for washing in the room, so are wondering if there is a suitable clothes washing establishment near the hotel. I suppose we can ask the hotelier, but they may be too happy to charge a high fee for each piece, yes? We can check with them, nevertheless.
I will be flying to Athens in August and would like advice on the best way to get to Milina. I am assuming I have to travel via Volos. Can I travel direct from the airport or do I have to go into Athens. Any advice would be welcome.
