A few interesting things about ATHENS


Plaka, Anafiotika This is the oldest neighbourhood of Athens. Walking on its paved narrow streets you get the feeling that you are travelling back in time. Anafiotika, built in the mid 19th century on the foothills of the Acropolis, has the charm of a beautiful island village. After drifting through the area, taste an exquisite preset plate of greek food and delis at a traditional local tavern

Gazi The former Gas works is at the center of the neighbourhood. It has to a large extent maintained the colour of a historic Athens neighbourhood. You will find cafes, bars and luxury restaurants, popular among Athenians, in a multitude of old, picturesque buildings

Traditional taverns You will be amazed at the variety of authentic dishes and delis that you can enjoy at a local greek tavern, all cooked with traditional recipies and under the strict supervision of the tavern owner. The surrounding atmosphere is also amazing. Go ahead, spoil your taste buds

Monastiraki flea market The variety of stuff and merchandise that you can find here is amazing, ranging from antiques, bargain books, leather goods, clothes, jewellery, small furniture, and various bits-and-pieces. Enjoy the hustle and bustle, and discover goodies at amazingly low prices

Ermou street shopping Ermou is the most popular shopping street in Athens. Starting close to the Parliament at Syntagma Square, Ermou is a pedestrian street, full of clothing and shoes stores. From the most known retailers such as Zara or H&M to smaller shops, Ermou Street is a shopping heaven. The street is very busy during the whole day. In case you get hungry, street vendors will offer you fried corn and traditional Greek food, such as “spanakopita” (spinach pie)

Live music A very special, authentic experience which you can have in Athens is Greek live music. There are small. Humble spots which continue the tradition of the good rebetika music. There are also clubs with young Greek singers. In this case the night is intense, the audience is passionate and stays up all night, the scenic presence of the singers is impressive and a lot of times reaches extreme heights, with people dancing on the tables and throwing flowers to the artists

Picturesque coffe shops It is virtually impossible to select the best coffee shops in Athens, given the wide selection on offer. Big and crowded cafeterias on a square, plus small and cozy bars hidden in small alleys are scattered all over the place. All the numerous specialty coffee shops have that "little something" which make them stand out
