About Athens

Athens is the metropolitan capital of Greece and one world’s oldest cities, with its history spanning back to 3,400 years. The city is a confluence of Ottoman, Byzantine and Roman civilizations that shaped its history and current culture. The city is a curious amalgamation of modern and ancient, with its significant historical monuments and modern cafés and restaurants. Athens is home to two historical landmarks and UNESCO World Heritage Sites; The Acropolis and The Daphni Monastery. It is a must-visit for all history buffs, as the architecture is a remnant of the city’s alluring past.

Things to keep in mind:

Though Athens is pretty safe for tourists, they do need to be wary of pickpockets and robbers in crowded places like the metro and take care of their personal belongings. The usual precautions of not carrying too many valuables and not leaving one’s baggage should be taken. Since demonstrations and protests are common in the city, the tourists should actively avoid such areas, just for the sake of personal safety. The locals generally steer clear of the areas around Omonoia Square at night, because of the presence of vagrants, beggars and thieves around this area.

Dine:

Athens is a hub of restaurants serving authentic Greek cuisine. There are other cuisines available here, but Greek food is most popular among the tourists. Street foods, such as ‘koulouri’ , a sesame-seed bread, ‘galaktoboureko’, a custard-filled pastry and ‘tyropitta’, a cheese pie, are favored among the travelers. The ‘Souvlaki’, a kind of Greek hamburger is also a delicacy that is worth a try. Places like the Varoulko Seaside, Funky Gourmet and the Psarras offer wholesome and traditional Greek three-course meals, and are frequented by tourists. Frappés, the Greek version of coffee, is offered by many Greek cafés and coffee houses.

Local Culture:

The Acropolis Museum, the National Archaeological Museum, the Agora Museum and many others preserve artifacts such as sculptures, pottery, vases and jewelry from Ancient Greece. The Historic Center has many ancient and historical landmarks and can be called an open-aired museum. Historical landmarks such as The Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Syntagma Square and the Kerameikos are popular tourist destinations. There are many tour buses that offer a complete roundabout around the city, covering major tourist destinations and attractions. The public parks such as Parnitha National Park, The National Garden of Athens Lycabettus, Philopappos hill and many more are great for outdoor activities such as biking, hiking and walking, surrounded by caves, springs, gorges and natural beauty all around.
