Athens has a long history of LGBTQ+ representation. Today our inclusive, diverse city is perfect for a romantic getaway, but also ideal for a single’s night out.
Athens is often hailed as the birthplace of democracy, but it was also the birthplace of gay culture. Openly practiced and celebrated, homosexuality was part of the social fabric of ancient Athens. Today, the Greek capital remains a very gay-friendly city, with countless gay and lesbian bars, many openly gay celebrities, and a vibrant LGBTQ+ community. Your local will introduce you to the LGBTQ+ scene, including cafes, bars, and beaches, as well as suggestions for drag shows and nightlife.
Great walk. We learned the area and also the cultural of LGBT here in Athens. The walk is more than fruitful, highly recommend to everyone even you are not in the LGBT community! Since you will get to see also bars, restaurants, locations that are suitable for everyone.

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!
