Athens has a long history of LGBT representation. Today our inclusive, diverse city is perfect for a romantic getaway, but also ideal for a single’s night out.



Potential starting points are the Info point kiosk at Syntagma or Keramikos subway station. Locals are non-paid savvy Athenians providing their personal opinions and not professional tour guides.



It was a fun walk, so much to see, loved the local perspective.

This two-hour tour began with the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Syntagma Square, with a walk through the National Gardens, past the Numismatic Museum and Garden, the Academy of Arts and Sciences, through the neighborhoods of Monastiraki, Psiri and Gazi. It was definitely a five-star experience. Thank you to This Is Athens for making this program possible.

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!
