The lust for life created by the Athenians is the number one ingredient that makes Athens the perfect dish, served fresh every day.
When it comes to leisure activities in Athens, a little planning goes a long way. Pre-selected activities are not a bad idea, especially for the busy traveller who has little time to research on-the-go.
