With Jimmy I discovered all major places in Athens. Although you don’t get inside museums or ruins, you go around them and get all the explanations.

Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
