Athens is for me a wonderful, full of life city! Anything you ask for, you will find it… That’s for sure!
Athens is a contemporary city that combines classic architecture with modern one in a way that captivates you.
In the centre, you can find the ancient culture and spirit all over Plaka, Monastiraki, Psiri area. It’s my favorite place all over Athens!
When I was living in Athens, I used to visit the centre every Saturday morning or afternoon, starting from Syntagma square where Ermou Str. begins down to Monastiraki square and then right, towards Plaka for a coffee and a sweet or an ouzo and a meze.
Ermou Str. is the most commercial street in the area and you can do window shopping for hours… 😉 It is a street only for pedestrians so you feel free to look around and it is also full of cafés to rest for a while…
Plaka is the old Athens!!! It’s magical, romantic, mesmerazing… A perfect place to relax and enjoy your company. You think that you are travelling back to time every time you visit the area. And of course, Acropolis, is in the area and everyone should pay a visit to feel the magic of the ancient times!!! And the amazing museum of Acropolis is worth visiting!!!
Anafiotika is an area in Plaka full of cozy and retro cafes and Yiasemi is my favorite one. Homemade sweets, aromatic coffees and delicious plates! Try it!
And finally, Athens by night and what is better than a glass of wine? Vintage wine bar & bistro is the perfect spot for a night of quality wines, dishes and friendly atmosphere!
