Planning – Greece – Part I – Athens

What to do?

My first thought is food!!!!!

Gyros comes to mind thanks to Sophie (a Grade 4 student) whose family recently travelled to Athens and said this food is a must do!

Next, is what to see?

Some shopping and eating in Plaka, one of the oldest and trendiest sections in Athens:
