#9 Go to the Museum of Illusions

If you’re staying for several days in Athens, you should have time to check out the Museum of Illusions. This museum chain also exists in other cities such as Amsterdam. It will impress both children and adults.

#10 Use the cable car to reach the Lycabettus Hill

Personally, I did not have time to pass by the Lycabettus Hill although you can admire a great sunset from there. You can reach the top of the hill whether by walking or using the cable car. There is also a classy restaurant that offers a beautiful view on the city especially at night.

With its high level of tourism, there are still many things to see in Athens such as the Limba Rage Room which is a unique experience or to have a drink on a rooftop bar or even to go to the beach as well.
