but unfortunately didn't see the very best we have.... you've seen just centers....not suburbs.....outside...or our islands.......maybe next time try to come with better guidance and more time....
it's like for example for me to come there and see just the Big Ben and around....not the beauty outside nor the true life......

Try to imagine that Athens is like a big valey surrounded by mountains....nowdays we have some cold (around 0 degrees) and in the mountains we have snow...about 10-20cm...on the other hand 40min from center of Athens you can be in beachside......
Should send some pics if you want to see more and better what i mean.....
i'm in yr disposal if y want.....
Been all over Greece - up into the mountains - along the east coast past Marathon up to Thessaloniki - also to many of the Greek Islands. Sadly it was 15 years ago - will have to do it again soon.

People were really friendly - which is more than can be said for many other countries in Europe!!!

I also love Greece. I mate and I did the pack packing thing there years ago, catching the ferry across from Brindisi. We spent 2 weeks in Athens when I became ill, we were so skint we had to eat every day down at the Plakka, which was an experience. We ended up spending almost a month on Crete "socialising" with the Brit girls there on holiday.
