Planning a last minute spring break trip to Rome or Athens. Any thoughts on one vs the other? Will have 5-6 days wherever I decide to go.

Big pro of Athens is the whole economic implosion thing really seems to have depressed hotel prices.

    Athens was a shit hole before the crisis (especially compared to Rome), I can only imagine it's much worse now. Besides, Italian women are hotter than Greek women (equally crazy, so that's a wash). Rome by a landslide.

    Is it easy enough to get around in Rome only speaking English?

    For some perspective I've been to North Korea so I think I can handle Athens being a shithole if that is indeed the case...

    But flights are the same and hotel cost difference won't matter hugely over 6 days so perhaps Rome is best if the language barrier won't be an issue.

    You will have no problem getting around Rome. It definitely helps to learn a little bit of the language, though

    It also seems to have depressed the whole fucking country.
