Is this one day Athens itinerary realistic?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Athens for 2 nights and 1 full day in mid October. Our priorities are seeing the Acropolis & Museum. We're not sure which order to do some highlights in - and do understand that closing hours may be in flux:

DAY 1 we are arriving at Hotel Attalos around 8pm. So hope to stroll to restaurants in Plaka, maybe dessert in the Central Market (if still open 24/7?)

DAY 2
MORNING: Rick Steves 2 hour "Athens City Walk" (highlights: Syntagma Square, Changing of Guards, Arch of Hadrian, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Anafiotika, Roman Forum)

LUNCH: Souvalki row or taverna in Plaka

AFTERNOON:
1 hour Ancient Agora (not as high on our priorities but it closes at 3pm)
2 hours Acropolis (I've seen conflicting times on how late this is open, 6pm?)
1.5 hours Acropolis Museum

Dinner in Plaka or Psyrri

We fly out early next morning, so no time for much more than this. Any suggestions on changes or restaurants (other than in Rick Steves book) are very welcome. Thank you!
