Trendiest neighborhoods🏡
Plaka: This neighborhood feels like a small village with artisanal shops, and local tavernas. You can find yourself wandering through the charming and narrow streets, admiring the ancient buildings and sites before heading to the picturesque squares surrounded by restaurants and cafes.
Kypseli: Talk a walk through Athen’s most artistic and multicultural neighborhoods. There are events, food markets, pop-up shops and more on every corner. You can hang here just for a meal or stay into the night and dine like Frank Sintra once did at the Au Revoir bar.
Paleo Faliro: If you want to breathe in the ocean air and get away from downtown, Paleo Faliro is the place for you. It’s still close to the city center but it’s a more quiet environment. Plus, there’s still a lot you can do: take a walk by the marina, visit the planetarium, go to museums, gastronomy tours and the list goes on!

Gyros, moussaka, tzatziki…

Athens is amazing and the weather is fantastic, but you know what even better? The food. If there’s one thing that can’t be denied, it’s that the Greek cuisine is delicious.

Sunny days all year long
⛱️
The sun shines in Athens no matter what season it is. Want to forget the cold, even in winter? In this city, the temperatures almost never go below 14 degrees even on the coldest days.
This gives you more time to lay back on the beach and soak up the sun. It’s also why most people in Athens are always out and about. If the weather’s good, there’s no reason to be cooped up inside! There are so many activities waiting for you and the perfect climate for you to enjoy them!
Name day celebrations
🎂
