The acropolis is Athens main site. It is crowded an expensive so go early and bring student ID as this will cut the entrance fee in half. It is walking distance from any hostel in the old town.

Avocado Restaurant Great for Dietary Needs
by Caroline about 4 years ago

Greece is already a great place for vegetarians, but if you want to die of happiness I highly recommend the avocado restaurant. One of my friends randomly heard of it and we all decided to try it out. We found it had a wide array of options that satisfied vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free diets. They had falafel, curries, flavorful pizzas, pastas and more. All of the food was made with fresh ingredients. I ordered an incredible pizza with a homemade pesto sauce, fresh mozzarella and arugula and one of my friends ordered a veggie burger the size of her face. We received more than enough food for a reasonable price. The one thing you must order from the menu is their amazing avocado chocolate cake. It is so rich and delicious and it is both vegan and gluten free. In addition the waiters were friendly and served our food in a timely manor. Come for the healthy and energizing food, but stay for the friendly atmosphere.
