5 Must See Landmarks in Athens, Greece

5 Must See Landmarks in Athens, Greece

Acropolis in Athens on a sunny day

When you honeymoon in a place as landmark-rich as Greece, it’s all about choosing which destinations are the most crucial. With this many amazing historical and cultural places to visit, there won’t be any rest for the two of you on your vacay!  If you only have a few days in Athens, here are the 5 can’t miss things to see and do!

Acropolis

The Acropolis of Athens is a collection of buildings and temples (including the Parthenon) built beyond a fortification wall.  Tourists flock to this legendary archaeological site, so be sure to schedule plenty of time in for lines and crowds (particularly if you go during a busier season).  Wander the awe-inspiring ruins on your own, or with a tour.

Acropolis Museum

This museum is one of the most popular modern attractions in Athens. Built on top of an existing archaeological site, this museum opened just a few years ago because the discoveries of digs at the Acropolis exceeded the previous museum’s space and design.  Artifacts from the Archaic, Classical, and Roman periods are all here in the galleries.  With a delicious on-site restaurant (that even the locals visit), prepare to spend the entire afternoon here.

Don’t worry–we’re not suggesting you climb a mountain on the limited time you have in Athens.  You can take the hillside cable railway to the top.  There is an open air amphitheater at the top, and if you happen to be in Athens during a concert, you should go.  But the real reason to go to Mt. Lycabettus is the amazing view. The picture-perfect panorama surrounding you will make you the envy of all of your Instagram followers back home.

National Archaeological Museum

Two museums? Yes.  Athens is considered the “cradle of Western civilization” for a reason.  You’re never going to get the opportunity to see these types of artifacts and art anywhere else. Savor it.  Particularly fascinating are the discoveries on display from the Antikythera shipwreck (in the 1st century B.C.), including an astronomical clock, thought to be the earliest example of an analog computer.

historical neighborhood in Athens called Plaka

Plaka

After all of the facts and knowledge you have learned at the last few destinations, you and your honey need to take some downtime and go for a stroll. Tour one of the most charming neighborhoods in Athens, Plaka, with unique architecture and winding streets.  With houses popping up as they weave in and out of the hillsides, it’s a magical place to behold. There are also cute little shops here and there, so plan on picking up a few souvenirs for your friends and family along the way.

Start planning your honeymoon here!

5 Must See Destinations in Mozambique

5 Must See Destinations in Mozambique

train station in Maputo, Mozambique

Headed to Mozambique for your honeymoon? This southeast African country is filled with beautiful beaches and interesting architecture. Here are 5 destinations to add to your Mozambique itinerary:

Maputo’s Architecture

The capital city (located near the southern border) is famous for its architecture, with one of the most popular buildings being the train station pictured above. Because this country was colonized by the Portuguese, there is an almost southern European feel to the city and its structures.  Tour the open air markets and take advantage of the unique culture and plentiful accommodations Maputo has to offer!  The city is currently experiencing a period of growth and renewal, as many overseas businesses are opening up locations here.

Quelimane Cathedral

Another architectural gem in Mozambique is the cathedral in the town of Quelimane.  Built in the late 18th century, the cathedral is currently in a state of ruin, although still considered to be one of the most majestic pieces of historical architecture in the region.  A revitalization project is rumored to be under way to preserve this building.

Mt. Namuli

Most of the area surrounding this granite dome is dominated by heavy forests and tea plantations. The view of Mt. Namuli is breathtaking. It’s difficult to get to the mountain, but there are trails nearby that are pretty to walk. If you are determined to climb Mt. Namuli, hire a local guide who can navigate local customs and act as an intermediary for you.

scuba diving in Mozambique

Scuba diving

With such a beautiful coastline, you can’t visit Mozambique and not stop at its beaches.  Take a trip under the sea in Ponta do Ouro and get an up close and personal take on this country’s aquatic life.  This town also offers popular dolphin watching tours, as well as a gorgeous beach to soak up the rays.

Lake Malawi

Located near the northern border of Mozambique is Lake Malawi, which is shared with Malawi and Tanzania. As this is a destination for locals and international tourists, you can expect to find all the usual water sports and easy access to accommodations.
