Our Athens. The city we, Athenians, love to curse but can’t live without.
I am absolutely sure that you’re going to have a great time in Athens.
Below you can find some tips that will make your stay in our city easier and more enjoyable.

A must-do list while you’re in Athens!

  • Visit the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum (don’t miss the breakfast at the veranda) but dong forget to visit Lycabetus hill with its spectacular views all over Athens.
  • If you’re visiting during summer don’t miss the opportunity to watch a film at an outdoor cimema. There are plenty in Athens.
  • Visit Pnyka, the rock where democracy was born.
  • Visit Exarchia, my favorite neighborhood, which is supposed to be the revolutionary side of Athens, full of graffities, small cafes and bars, and nice taverns.
  • If you are in Athens on Saturday don’t miss the most famous farmers market of Athens at Kallidromiou street at Exarcheia. Fresh food and vegetables and a lot of people shopping at the most iconic farmers market in Greece.
  • Eat lunch at a kafeneio (traditional coffee shop that serves 3-4 courses).
  • Go to the sea. Take the tram from city centre and enjoy the Athenian sea.
  • Visit the Central Athens Public Market in the centre of Athens (Aiolou street). There’s the fresh meat and fish market under one roof in a very beautiful building and directly across the road is the fruit and vegetable market.
  • Drink a frappe (iced coffee).
  • Buy a “pay as you” go sim card (you can find at the airport) for cheap calls and mobile data .
  • Use the metro. Our metro may not be as wide as London’s or New York’s but it can be quite helpful. Buy a 5-day ticket for only 9 euro and use all public transport.
  • Taxis in Greece are quite cheap. 3,5 euros is the minimum charge. Download the Beat app and order a taxi whenever and wherever you are.
