The Acropolis is usually the first port of call for people exploring Athens - a city of many skins. One must peel them back to explore the intricacies of its distinctive neighborhoods.
A sundowner with Ottoman appeal in Plaka, haggling for olive oil at the Varvakios Agora market, a museum or gallery stop, an alfresco performance at the Odeon or the Cine Paris, a host of kilt-wearing, pom-pom festooned guards marching down Leoforos Vasilissis Sofias to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Sunday morning – Athens is full of serendipity.
For the young at heart and spirit, Athens’ nightlife is legendary. Syrri, Gazi, Syntagma and Keramikos are crawling with bar-hoppers and in summer, the rooftop terraces make a delightful setting for a cocktail or two. Head beyond the city limits for day trips to historic sites like Delphi and Hydra. Zip across the opalescent water or explore the stunning coastline that stretches along the city.
