Customer Travel Tip: From Mt. Lycabettus you can get an overview of the city. For the ancient sights (especially Acropolis) get an early sight - if you want to avoid waiting in line for the ticket, be there around 7:40 (from 7:45 there will be a bit of a queue) - at 9:00 one of the big rushes of tourists comes.

Liked: I'm interested in ancient history, so here there were a lot of interesting things. The best was the Acropolis Museum

Disliked: A little hectic (especially when I arrived back from one of the islands)
