48 HOURS IN ATHENS

Greece is a country that I’ve always wanted to visit and although it is quite close to Spain, I’ve never gotten around to going there. Every time I started planning a trip there, something else came up and I would have to postpone it.

This time around, I finally got to it. I planned a whole week there and started out with 48 hours in Athens. I was personally a bit disappointed with the city as I didn’t find it to be as beautiful as other European cities I’ve visited along the years (don’t get mad at me for expressing a personal opinion lol)… That being said, I was dying to visit the Acropolis and the nearby area of Plaka. I strongly recommend visiting the latter, it is filled with small and charming streets, magical corners and loads of places where you can take beautiful pictures and make great memories. You’ll also have the typical souvenir shops and an infinite amount of interesting restaurants.

Out of my personal experience, I would like to share another piece of advice (I’ve already mentioned it on YouTube) is to visit the Acropolis very early in the morning. On the one side, you’ll avoid the heat at mid-day and on the other, you’ll be able to admire the ruins without being disturbed by the hordes of tourist that normally flock there. Within two hours of the opening, the place will be loaded with people and that can be pretty annoying.

When it came to styling it up in Athens, I went for comfy and practical (like a good tourist that I was lol). That way, I got to take it easy while visiting the city. Hope you like what I prepared for you and can’t wait to hear your comments 🙂

Siempre había querido visitar Grecia, y aunque es un país que está relativamente cerca de España, nunca había tenido la oportunidad. Siempre que planeábamos un viaje a las islas algo surgía y no podíamos llevarlo a cabo.

Pero esta vez fue diferente. Planeamos una semana en Grecia, pasando nuestras primeras 48 horas en Atenas. Llegamos al aeropuerto y de ahí cogimos un taxi hasta nuestro hotel. Aunque tengo que decir que la ciudad no es especialmente bonita (ahora no me matéis por una opinión subjetiva jaja) teníamos muchísimas ganas de visitar las ruinas de la Acrópolis y una zona cercana llamada Plaka que os recomiendo muchísimo visitar porque está llena de callecitas con encanto, rincones mágicos y muchísimos sitios en los que os podréis hacer una foto para el recuerdo.

Además también tenéis las típicas tiendas de souvenirs e infinidad de restaurantes interesantes.

Otro consejo que os doy, aunque ya os lo conté en el video de Grecia, es que visitéis la Acrópolis super temprano por la mañana. Por un lado os ahorraréis el calor infernal del mediodía y por otro lado, podréis ver las ruinas sin agobiaros. Os aseguro que a las dos horas de abrir está atestado de turistas y se hace un poco incómodo.

Para mis jornadas en Atenas como véis, elegí un par de looks super cómodos y prácticos (muy de turista jaja) para poder ir tranquila y visitar la ciudad.

    48 hours in Athens isn’t nearly enough to discover this beautiful and ancient place but it’s def. enough to enjoy it to the max!
    Loved your outfits, they’re both so stylish and comfy!

    Alex, ¿qué tono y de qué marca es el pintauñas grisecito que llevas en el primer look? Hace tiempo que busco uno así, pero no he logrado nada parecido. No cambies jamás. Tienes ese aura que te hace especial y que, a su vez, hace especial todo lo que luces. Te sigo desde tus inicios, y forever and ever Lovely Pepa. Un gran abrazo

    So glad you finally got to visit Greece! I loved my time in Athens and the Greek Islands last year – it became my favorite country. It’s so magical! I’m was having that same experience with Spain – always wanting to go, but it just never happened. Now I’m going to be in Spain next month and can’t wait!!

    OH Athens is a HUGE city and ther’s soooo much to see! Next time you have to go to Athens Riviera, to Glyfada, for instance. You’ll love it there! Or more south towards sounio for nice beach life.

    Sad you didn’t think it was as good as your expectations. Next time you come though, I deeply recommend to give it more days. As I said, that city is HUGE!

    Athens has a unique beauty. I don’t know what your expectations were but I suggest next time you travel, you should devote some time to learn more about your destination. I always google my destination and read others people’s suggestions and initiaries. Planning is the key to a memorable trip.
