Sightseeing is perhaps the favourite activity of all tourists coming to Athens. Some of the most stunning ancient ruins can be visited here. Athens city sightseeing can be done on foot, by public transportation or taxi. Most of the world-known and unique sights are located rather close to each other, which makes it easy to reach them all on foot. If you are in Athens during the summer, it’s best to do your city sightseeing during the morning hours when the weather is not too hot. Museums make excellent Athens city sightseeing locations in the hot afternoon hours, when the conditions are not the best for, say, climbing up to the Acropolis.
