I like it. It was fascinating. The acropolis and its new museum were entirely worth the trip, but like the Greek isles, I couldn't help but feel like it's all been a little over-hyped. Greece seems to be a top destination on many American's wish list (myself included), but I can't quite see why. It isn't beautiful like Paris, accessible like London, or enchanting like Rome. It's not cutting edge like Berlin, or exotic (but accessible) like Prague. Santorini was certainly lovely, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is about Greece that's got everyone so excited. Am I jaded? I don't feel like I am. Maybe I've missed it. Maybe reflection and time will cast it in a softer light. I certainly didn't dislike it, so there's something to be said about that.
One thing that was a highlight of the trip was going to Strofi, an Athenian restaurant with impeccable service and a killer view of the acropolis. The food was marvelous and we had a wonderful evening. If you are in Athens, it's an absolute must to have a bit of a splurge dinner and eat here. Warning: you must have a reservation as the seating is limited for the terrace. And let's face it, if you're not on the terrace, you're missing out on the whole point of going there.
