    Miscellaneous: Before you go, be sure to check out Matt Barrett's unbeatable travel guide at www.athensguide.com.
    It's packed with useful information on almost every topic one can think of (sights, restaurants, hotels, excursions, city walks, greek language, music etc.) and some very interesting travelogues and stories that are really fun reading.
    It's almost a pity that Matt has published his webguides only about Athens and Greece :-)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: When you are going to places like the Acropolis, make sure you have some comfortable shoes with good traction. Not only is it very steep but the steps can be very slippery. And those dogs, when they take off, you can almost get knocked down :)
    Take a hat to protect yourself from the sun and light clothes. We were there in September so the weather was warm.

    Do it on a double bed if U wanna carry more LOL

    Luggage and bags: As I like to travel LIGHT, I use to do the "bed test". I spread all the items on a bed. All that doesn't fit on the bed I leave it at home.
    It has always worked for me :-))

    Be prepared for hot.. no, VERY HOT weather :))

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You absolutely have to take:
    1) sandals - for easy-walking everywhere;
    2) cap - to protect your head;
    The most unnecessary thing is an umbrella - rains are very rare here, especially in summer.
