I agree with others that a day in Athens is plenty. Two at the most.

When in Athens, we stayed in a hotel that was right next to a university. On the one hand, since police are generally not allowed on university campuses, there were a lot of sketchy and worse characters on campus. On the other hand, we felt pretty safe, because there were always police around, just outside the borders of said university.

When were there (four years ago), in-country costs were pretty cheap. But airfare was relatively expensive. So the longer you can stay, the lower your average costs per vacation day should be.
