We will be going to Athens in a few days and will be spending 3 days there. What are the must see attractions besides Acropolis. Also, we will be going to Aegina Island for 2 nights. Has anyone been there?
We are interested in historical sights, one or two museums, and maybe some green scenic parks.

This will also be culture shock as we live in Middle East and access to alcohol is limited - we live in dry country!

Sorry, I've only sailed by it on the way to Hydra (Idra). Each of the islands will have its own character. I believe you can also use smallish, high speed, ferries to travel daily back and forth between nearby islands and the Peloponnesian peninsula. I haven't been that often to Athens on my island journeys, but you might enjoy visiting the Plaka area where you can find some Middle Eastern influence. Strolling around the Parthenon is enjoyable, as it sits on the edge of the Plaka area, and in the early evening there is a high, rocky point near the Parthenon where people from all over come to visit, to eat their home-prepared suppers, relax with their own and other families (many from the Middle East) and watch the sunset. I find it a peaceful and happy location.
