Stay near the Plaka area and the pedestrian roads leading away from the Acropolis there's plenty to do and see with many monuments and history around every corner.

The Tourist Police number is 171, and they do speak good English. Happily I never needed them and I hope you don't either.

Athens was named after the Ancient goddess Athena who 'won' the competition with Poseidon the God of the Sea. The ancients built the Parthenon in her honor.

The City has a population of over 5,000,000 according to the latest census. Watch out for motorcycles and cyclists even in pedestrian areas.

Athens is one of the safest City's in the World, if you see a ribbon across a road and a policeman there don't cross it, there's probably a demonstration.

You can walk through Plaka to Monasteraki the flea market area and the Agora [market.]
