Hi, there! I am 27 years old and I have lived in Athens since I was born. I speak English, French and Spanish, and I am a Swedish language beginner. I love long walks, cultural events and exploring downtown Athens. I am fascinated by the city's hills and its urban landscape. I also love old Athenian architecture and local history. I became an Athens Local to share with you as many of my favourite spots in the Greek capital as possible!
Tip: Getting to the top of either Lycabettus or Philopappou Hill is a must during your visit; the view is really worth it, and you get to see the small St George's church or Philopappos Monument.

Born and raised in Athens, I have witnessed the changes in this dynamic and fast growing capital during the last decades. 
In many cases I rediscovered the beauty of my own city, through the photos and narrations of international friends who visited Athens, and I felt very proud and happy to be an Athenian. Traveling, living and working abroad for a few years made me realize the added value of contact with the locals. Therefore, I am very willing become a guide and co-traveller in the exploration of this city for international visitors!!
