good to know ;)Christos in that case, which place would you recommend to drink ouzo ? have a nice day, Iza.

Christos Theodorou 9 days ago

bogiza - About 100 metres from there, there are 2-3 restaurants if you want to drink and eat something. But it is better to drink ouzo near the sea, because after this point comes the ascent to Acropolis from the north-east side. Many thanks for your visit and comments – Best regards from Athens
