ATHENS ON A BUDGET 2018: Travel Guide & Itinerary; Yoshke Dimen; The Poor Traveler Blog

Greece – Acropolis, Athens

Here’s a BUDGET TRAVEL GUIDE TO ATHENS, GREECE! With sample itinerary, breakdown of expenses, hotel and tour recommendations, tourist spots to visit, visa application guide, and more travel tips!

The Athenians are proud of their city.

Not in a bragging way. They’re proud, but I mean it in the most positive sense of the word. We could tell by the words they chose to describe it. We could tell by the way their eyes shimmered when they shared tales from their history and mythology. We could tell when our cab driver took a detour to what he said they call “the Balcony of Athens” for the most wonderful view of the city, and he did it at no additional cost. We could tell when we tried to tip our guide and he refused profusely. “My friends,” he said, “It’s enough for me to know that my home is appreciated.”

The Athenians are proud of their city. I would be too if I were in their shoes.
