Honeymoon Part II: Athens, Greece

Our second location for our honeymoon was Athens, Greece!

It was a very short trip and that ended up working perfectly for us. We felt a little rushed in our two day visit in Athens, but we also felt like we hit all the major touristy things. Athens was amazing and we both really enjoyed the history, culture, and food of the city!

An amazing authentic Greek lunch in the Plaka – a historical neighborhood of Athens with a market feel – For us, it was what you think Athens would look like
