Hi.

My name is Andrea. I'm happy you're here! This is my blog about my family's traveling adventures, recipes and insight for eating and living well, and other fun, general, mommy stuff.  Grab a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine) and take a look around!

When we started planning the itinerary for our trip to Greece, we knew our time in Athens would be pretty limited.  Since we only had one full day to do sightseeing, we wanted to stay somewhere within walking distance of the Acropolis.  After some research, I came across the Athens Gate Hotel on TripAdvisor and it had everything I was looking for -- great reviews, it was affordable and was located in the heart of the historic district, only a 10 minute walk to the Acropolis.  Our room had a beautiful view of the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

They also boasted the 4th Best Rooftop View in the world according to TripAdvisor.  So, I made a dinner reservation and specified that we wanted to be seated on the patio with the Acropolis view.  Not only did they accomodate us, they gave us the best table in the house!  We watched the sunset over dinner and it was everything we had hoped for.  The panoramic view was unforgettable, making our little visit to Athens just about perfect. ;)
