Owner of Athens original & still #1 best furnished vacation rentals & historic homes, online at greekvacationrentals.com. Roots in Chicago heart in Greece, fell for Greece, fell for a Greek guy & fell an "accidental tourism business", providing the only furnished vacation apartments & homes in downtown Athens which allow you to flush your used toilet paper down the john & come equipped with US/Canadian electric charging stations.There is no better home away from home than ours. Basil and I split our time between Athens & Chicago. I have a tremendous passion about my adopted city, and love to share my discoveries with travelers who are interested in more than the typical Athens tourist traps. I'm not a good one to ask how to spend 1 day in Athens, because I will tell you to spend it figuring out how to spend 1 week - because Athens is truly a marvelous city, at once modern and ancient, both grey and green (yes, I live downtown, minutes by foot from 3 little forests & the Acropolis).
