juha's "Athens and some islands"
juha from Finland wrote about Acropolis of Athens 5 years, 10 months ago
Acropolis is everything you think it would be. The only two things that you don't read about is that it takes ages to get up there (and boy are you sweating after the climb) and that there are so many people moving around is a pain. Otherwise great!
Santorini is something you need to see if you like awesome sceneries and nature. The downside is that there are tons of tourists (especially american for some reason) so there is little chance of seeing true greek culture here. The view from the ridge of the caldera is still worth the visit. Make sure to rent a scooter and drive around the island and see the sunset at Ia!
If you're going to Athens make sure that you reserve some days to explore the islands as well. Milos was definitely a fantastic place. There were also very few tourists which makes it even greater. :)
Climbing (with the bus obviously) from the port to the actual island is something you don't do every day. Very steep and 300 meters high makes it a fun trip. The whole island is extremely beautiful, even more so than many other Greek islands, but that makes it a tourist trap as well. It's so beautiful though that I for once didn't mind.
It was supposed to be the most beautiful sunset in the world according to Lonely Planet. Well, that was a bit too much. Pretty anyways and the town of Oia is nice too. Quite a lot of tourists squeeze their way here to see the sunset. I'd take a Finnish mid summer night by a lake any day over this sunset. Still definitely worth the small trip if you're on the island.
