In the narrow streets near the Acropolis, Athens breathes crafts. They are full of shops to buy souvenirs and even thousands of vases and bowls with patterns of clay and terracotta Hellenic highly prized. Plates, cups, teapots, vases, c├íntires … are the stars of the craft shops.

But the city is much more, as in the center, featuring Syntagma Square, is concentration of the population for their comings and goings and to party. The Plaza has also starred in other events, and various social and political manifestations.

For something different city, you should reach the port of Piraeus. Their boats and yachts draw a fantastic landscape. It’s time to eat the rich Greek cuisine in one of its terraces. The moussaka, salads, sauces, yogurt, fish, excellent wine and, of course, more consistent desserts await you in one of the most complete and healthy cuisines of the world.
