ATHENS' BEST starts with essential TRIP-PLANNING information and an overview of key NEIGHBOURHOODS so you can decide where to stay.

A hand-crafted ITINERARIES section then offers first-timers a good way to start exploring the city over one or two of days, as well as recommending a few insider’s TOURS.

Or, if say you’ve just want to find, say, the very best ART, or are keen to explore GREEK HISTORY, you might just dive straight into info on these in the INTERESTS & ACTIVITIES section. Other categories here include ART, HIKING and KIDS & FAMILIES.

Finally the app details a few good places to EAT & DRINK near many key sights and even gives you a run down of SHOPS & SHOPPING to help you find that perfect souvenir.
