One night and day in Athens

Jump to last reply

I am female traveling solo from Istanbul into Athens via Aegean Air and land at 10:40PM on a Wed. I leave the next day at 5:20PM, Thurs. and since I have pretty much a whole night and day - I plan to leave the airport. Since this is not a layover - but 2 separate flights - I plan to store my bags in the airport.

During the day - I plan to start early and see the sunrise from across the Acropolis, then head into the Acropolis, Parthenon and walk through Plaka before heading back to the airport. In the chance that I have time to spare - I may go to the beach near Vouliagmeni. I feel like I have my day pretty planned out and would love any advice and tips.

But, I am unsure about what to do the night I arrive. I am not booking a hotel as I would like to save money and am looking to either sleep for a few hours at the airport or possibly go into Athens see it a bit and spend a night in a 24 hour diner or hotel restaurant. Are there any decent 24 hours places where I can spend a few hours my first night? Any suggestions for what I could do/see in the night and which areas I should avoid? I hear Greece is a night time city - but does everything shut down at a certain time in the night?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks.
