The city’s bird population is particularly diverse and it’s likely to spot—or at least, hear—parrots in Athens, as wild colonies have been spotted in many of the city’s parks. Pay a visit at the National Garden, the Lycabettus Hill, the Philopappou Hill, the Kifissos Delta for a city centre excursion or drive up to Mount Ymittos, Antonis Tritsis Park, Schinias Reserve, Mount Parnitha, the Vravrona Estuary if you are in for a day-trip.

Athens is transforming. Don't miss a thing with our monthly newsletter.
