Mayor of Athens  

Born and raised in Athens I can never get enough of this inviting, intriguing, exciting city. I love Athens for its variety, its' contradictions and the moments that it offers - there's no way that one gets bored! The hidden places, the out of space and out of time locations, the secret paths of a city that combines modern and traditional elements in such a unique way!
Let's discover Athens together!

I was born in Athens and I have lived in the southern suburbs (Athens Riviera) for more than 40 years. The last five years I have been working to bring more tourists to my neighbourhood. Also, I collaborate with other citizens to make the archeological spots of our municipality known to others. I believe that Athens and the Athens Riviera can attract people with different interests. It is very important to me to show visitors the real (and rich in many ways), Attica and Athens.

Nicole V.

Chemist, PM, MUA, creative thinker and dedicated reader. I was born and raised in Athens, left for 6 years to study in Cyprus and came back. I live in Zografou. Even though I have spent most of my life in Athens, I realise every day that there many amazing places that I have never visited, so I always try to explore this city - my city - and learn new places and things. I love walking around town, taking the train and exploring the areas around the train stations. I love exploring new street food places and tasting local and international dishes!
