Adam Kaupert visits the Monastiraki Flea Market
My friend Nikko from Indiana grew up in Athens and would not stop pestering me to make sure I visited the Monastiraki flea market while I was visiting Athens, Greece as part of this year’sAdam Kaupert travel blog tour of the world’s greatest cities. After I checked out the Market I was glad he had encouraged me to go, it was awesome! On Sundays the market is busiest as any people from towns and villages outside Athens make the trek into the city to peddle their wares. Be prepared though it can be very busy on Sundays but it is an Adam Kaupert must see if you’re visiting here. You can find just about anything you’re looking for and sample some great traditionalGreek flavors along the way. This is a terrific Athens Travel blog that is an official Adam Kaupert travel blog approved site:
At night the market fills with a young vibrant crowd that is the future face of Greece. It was such a treat to sip some wine and chat with the youth of Athens. It seems to me the future is bright for Greece!
Adam Kaupert stays at the InterContinental Athenaeum Athens
The decision to stay at the InterContinental Athenaeum Athens was a total no brainer. There are other nice hotels on the island but nothing compares to the InterContinental Athenaeum Athens hotel. Its design is a great mix of classical Greek and modern elegant beauty. The service here was totally on point, I had all my whims catered to and felt well rested and relaxed upon my departure. There is a spa here that you can really lose yourself in. If the attractions of Athens weren’t calling my name I would’ve spent the whole visit in the InterContinental Athenaeum Athens. The rooftop bar is not to be missed as its views are some of the best in the area.
