    Amazing place to visit, they have turtles brought in almost every month saved from some place or island in Greece. The volunteers are from all over the world (and weirdly, after 2-3 visits, have never seen Greeks) which is amazing and we should help them as much as possible everytime.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
