As in the rest of Greece, traveling in Athens, though a lot of fun, can be unpredictable at times. Weather, strikes, inconvenient schedules—the best-laid plans can easily go astray. But with some advance planning, good luck, and a willingness to be flexible, you can see what you set out to see, and unexpected sights and unanticipated delights will most likely be part of the package, too. That said, here are some ideal ways to see the best of Athens, whether you've only got one or two days or you're traveling with children. As they say in Greece, Kalo taxidi! (Have a good trip!)
