Athens is truly a lovely city for a weekend or to extend your beach vacation with a few days. Maybe you want a weekend Athens after your round trip Greece? Athens is modern and 'old' at a time. There's a lot to see, there are wonderful museums, the weather is pleasant throughout the year, the food is delicious and the city is not expensive. During a weekend Athens you can walk through Plaka or Monasteraki, great shopping in Kolonaki, visit museums, take a cruise of one day to Hydra, Poros and Aegina, attend a cooking course, sightseeing with a 'local', etc. A weekend Athens is trendy.
