For me it was a particular experience to walk around Athens, going a bit farther and far from the main touristic areas, and it was like that because I have never seen a city so similar to Caracas: people's behavior, temperature (at least during spring),...More

Large city market with numerous stalls and vendors offering fresh produce, meats, coffee, olives, sweets, dry items...souvenirs, housewares, etc. Many prepared food items to enjoy, so try something different like souvlaki, dolmades or saganaki...yummy!
