Under $100 / Europe

If you are a fan of classical history and mythology, there are probably many cities and destinations on your list to visit. Athens, Greece, contains many monuments and historic places. With so much to do, it is good to have an idea about how to keep your budget trim.

 

Start your day with breakfast at Smile Restaurant. You can get a meal here for about $10 and this little café offers a great take on traditional Greek food like gyros.

 

After breakfast, it is time to sightsee. Set out for the Acropolis of Athens. This awe-inspiring ancient complex features many works of historical significance, including the Parthenon.

 

After awhile, it is time for lunch. Head over to Ατίταμος. This authentic restaurant is reasonably priced, making it a great place to get lunch before heading out for more adventure.

 

After lunch, head to Plaka. This is a neighborhood in the shadows of the Acropolis filled with small shops, the perfect destination for an afternoon of browsing and picking up souvenirs. You can find Plaka on the north side of the Acropolis.

 

For dinner, you aren’t going far. Strafi Restaurant offers guests views of the Acropolis through dining. Fill up on authentic Athenian cuisine while looking out at the Acropolis. Head back to your hotel after a long day of adventuring and eating great food.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
