Editor Rating: 8- While part of the Euro-zone, Athens is not one of the cities which burn a whole in your pocket. Sure, if you want a hotel room with a view of Acropolis, it will cost a lot. But there are always methods to cut the costs and you’ll be surprised how affordable the city is. But be prepared to part with some cash if you travel during the high season.
