Overlooked Attractions in Athens

Scott G. Sink

For more than 30 years, Scott G. Sink, the senior executive vice president of the Energy and Marine Division of McGriff, Seibels & Williams, Inc., has been working as an insurance and risk management professional. When he’s not busy overseeing the activities of a 60-person team, Scott G. Sink enjoys traveling to such locales as Athens, Greece. Below are several underrated attractions in Athens that are worth visiting:

- Brettos: This unique destination is perfect for anyone who enjoys color. The oldest distillery in the city, Brettos has covered its walls with a variety of colorful bottles, lit from behind and creating a fantastic display for visitors.

- Omonia: Set in downtown Athens, Omonia is home to many students, artists, and working-class individuals. On the streets of the quarter, visitors can find plenty of libraries, bars, and clubs, though the area is known for being risky at night due to its high population of anarchists.
- Antikythera Mechanism: Constructed around 200 BC, the Antikythera Mechanism is a great example of a clockwork computer. Consisting of more than 30 gears, it’s known as the first analog computer and was discovered by sponge divers in 1900 after resting in a shipwreck for more than 2,000 years.
