Athens as a city, is a big fat man, who's dirty and not able to move.
Culture of course you can have there a lot, for example with the Parthenon, the Agora and so on. You can spend days there, only visiting ancient Greek places and museums, mostly close to areas with ancient ruins.
There're a lot of small bars and restaurants, they are not bad, but neither so good. Of course you can have exquisite food, but it has got its prices.
Altogether the city itslef doesn't worth a visit, but because of the culture you really have to go there. The public transportation isn't very good, but i wouldn't recommend you to go there by car, because there are only a few highways and in the inner city the traffic is horrible.
