Finally booked the Plaka hotel after reading fab reviews on TA. Got my walking sandals - hope it doesnt rain! Printed my maps, bought 3 guide books, planning to do guided tours too.
However, made sure I read up on unsafe areas - as single female but very streetwise as born in and live in London and noted about Omonia area being a bit risky and not to travel there alone but isn't this the way to the museum? Is there a bus I can take from Plaka to the museum and back without having to walk through the area?
I also plan to go out for dinner at night but will stick to Plaka area where I'm sure it will be busy at night too.
Can't wait for this experience, god willing a good one and I'll report back as usual.
So would appreciate if anyone can help with my question please?
Also checked BBC website and it says Athens is raining for next 3 days!
