Athens is a metropolis full of sights, delicious food and rich culture.

Why Athens is a perfect winter city break? Fewer tourists and lower prices.

What should you do, see and experience in Athens?

The Acropolis is a sacred place for the Greeks, visited by millions of tourists every year. This oldest part of the city was settled 5000 years ago and is still the heart of the city.

Greece and gyros simply belong together. What would a visit to Athens be without gyros as a snack? Get yourself one! The best gyros can be found at food stalls in the Monastiraki district.

The traditional cafes and bars under the Acropolis are a place to enjoy your refreshing frappé while admiring the breathtaking beauty and extraordinary atmosphere.

The market in Athens is a show of all sorts of smells. Fish, seafood, fruits and vegetables attract passers-by. Don’t miss the market with the tastiest seafood from the Mediterranean.

If you need some rest and relaxation, you can find them in the main square of Athens, Syntagma Square. However, the largest green oasis in central Athens awaits you in the beautiful Athens National Garden. The entire park has the character of a quiet city forest and forms a popular local recreation area with a cute network of paths.

Do you miss the sea? The subway will take you to it! You can get to the port of Piraeus for just a few euros. The train doesn’t go underground all the time, so you can see the amazing panorama of Athens. The further the beaches are from Athens, the more beautiful they are.

The most popular Athens beach is located in the Kavouri-Vouliagmeni region.
