AROUND THE ACROPOLIS

Welcome to Athens, the historical capital of Europe with a long rich history and modern vibrations. Let’s take a historic walk and explore charming old-style neighborhoods, oases away from the hustle and bustle of the city center such as Makrygianni, Plaka, Thiseio, Kerameikos, Monastiraki and Psyrri.

HISTORIC DISTRICT

Begin your stroll from Syntagma Square, where you can watch the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier in front of the Greek Parliament. After your souvenir photo next to the immovable statuette guards, take ermou street, one of the busiest shopping spots in Athens, towards Monastiraki.

KOLONAKI & LYCABETTUS

Nearby, you will find posh Kolonaki, with its beautiful parks and attractive buildings. It’s the ideal area for shopping, where you can find the most expensive commercial shops in addition to popular cafes and luxury restaurants to enjoy before or after you go to the shops.

NEW HOTSPOTS

Agia Eirini Square. Names after the beautiful church of St. Irini (Agia Irini), the area became over the last few years one of the hottest – if not THE hottest – spots in town! Once home to Athens’ flower markets, today the square and the surrounding streets are lined with coffee-shops, eateries, and trendy bistro bars that will serve you inspiring cocktails and food including brakfasts, snacks, and main meals. On weekends the area is packed with young people while you ‘ll find events and live performances by numerous musicians.

CULTURAL AVENUE

The reconstruction of Syggrou Avenue is among the most important renovations in the coming years. The new Syggrou Avenue will become vehicle and pedestrian friendly, as well as assemble the metropolitan cultural life in the 21st century.
