Athens City Centre

Downtown Athens has a range of different vibes across its different districts, which are always buzzing with life. Syntagma Square is the city’s financial and trade centre, with almost half the city’s population having to pay a daily visit there. At the north-west of the square sits the historical district of Plaka, Thission as well as the Acropolis. To the square’s west there is Monastiraki with its outdoor Flea Market and the district of Psyri with all its nightclubs and entertainment hotspots. In the same direction, a bit further on, there is the district of Gazi, a favourite hangout for the younger population of Athens, with upbeat bars and good restaurants. To the north-east of Syntagma there is Athens’ historical centre, with its beautiful buildings, streets, and memories of the old city. Going north to north-east from Syntagma Square, one can see the district of Exarheia, an area of great political import. It is a meeting-point for intellectuals, students and book-lovers, as well as being home to Kolonaki, the upper-class urban district with haute-couture stores, often frequented by the political, social and financial elite of the city.

North Suburbs of Attica

The northern side of Attica is characterised by high mountains and lush greenery. Therefore, the northern suburbs have traditionally been the residential area of wealthy families that opted to live close to nature and away from the bustle of the cities. A few kilometres from the city centre are the districts of Psychiko and Philothei. Home to a majority of foreign ambassadors, this area is famous for its many important attractions and an abundance of large parks and open spaces. The undoubted centre of the northern suburbs of Attica is Kifissia, gathering together all the big names in Athens’ shopping, gastronomy and nightlife scenes. Surrounding Kifissia are the suburbs of Nea Erythrea, Ekali, Pendeli, Agia Paraskevi, Halandri and Amaroussion.

South Suburbs of Attica

The southern parts of Attica in Greece, face the sea, forming the city’s summer face. Here, the leading role is played by the suburb of Glyfada: heart of the trade, finance, gastronomy and entertainment in the area. Hotels, a multitude of stores, marinas, restaurants, cafés, bars and clubs, major attractions and the buzz of life composite the scenery of the Athenian Riviera. The green of nature and the blue of the sea form the scenery of the suburb of Vouliagmeni, ideal for a walk and lunch by the sea. The south suburbs of Paleon Faliron, Kalamaki, Alimos and Ellinikon are also at the seafront, favourite summer destinations for swimming and fun.

West Suburbs of Attica

Just outside the centre of Athens, the western suburbs have their own unique character, cultural identity and top-notch entertainment. Egaleo and Eleusis feature important archaeological finds, while Peristeri, Nikaia and Koridalos bring out the beauty of everyday life as you wander the streets among shopping centres and squares with ample cafés and terraces. Come closer to nature with a walk in the Dimidius Botanical Gardens in Xaidari. Enjoy a stroll through the Antonis Tritsis Environmental Awareness Park in Ilion or the lush Baroutadiko Park in Egaleo. Or explore the area’s quaint taverns and charming bars. Their tastes and colours await you!

East Suburbs of Attica

To the eastern side of Attica in Greece, behind the mountain ranges of Hymettus and Penteli, you can visit the historic area of Marathon, the archaeological site of Artemis in Vravron, and the port of Lavrion with its historical fish market and the small ouzo taverns. Spata International Airport and many great beaches can also be found in the eastern parts of Attica. Cape Sounion is situated on the south-eastern side of Attica. The Temple of Poseidon, ever watchful for invaders from the sea, adds to the beauty of this historical site. Stone, marble, earth, sea and sky are the very core of Attica’s history and also contribute to the quality of the world-famous wine, fish and cheese found here. The southeast suburbs of Varkiza, Agia Marina, Lagonisi, Saronida and Anabyssos are also at the seafront, favourite summer destinations for swimming, fantastic beach bars and fun.

Piraeus

Piraeus is the largest port in Attica and, indeed, the whole country. It has all the main characteristics of a port, such as a large market and good food options. One can find some major attractions in downtown Piraeus, while the areas around the port have very good taverns serving great food and ouzo, overlooking the fishing boats and little private boats. Kastella, Mikrolimano and Pasalimani stand out as having the best food and the most buzzing nightlife, all complemented by a view over the Saronic Gulf.

History of Attica

Athens was the most powerful town of Attica in the ancient times. Although, there were also other towns in the peninsula that developed for some time. In the Mycenaean times, the people of Attica lived in autonomous agricultural societies and this is when many towns were established in the peninsula, such as Marathon, Spata, Thorikos and Athens itself. In fact, Attica had 12 small communities under the reign of Cecrops, a mythical king. All these towns were incorporated in an Athenian state during the hegemony of legendary Theseus.

Until the 6th century B.C, aristocratic families lived independently in the suburbs. However, after the laws of the tyrant Pesistratus and the reforms of Cleisthenes, all these local communities lost their independence and were united under the central government of Athens. As a result, Athens became the most powerful town of the peninsula. With the development of its navy, Athens conquered many other towns of Greece and the Asia Minor and became the centre of trade, culture, art and economics. Many historical sanctuaries were constructed that time around Attica, including the glorious Acropolis of Athens, the temple of Artemis in Vravrona, the Sanctuary of Amphiaraos, the Temple of Poseidon in Sounion and many many others which can be visited today.

The decline that followed the defeat in the Peloponnesian War was determinant and since then Athens lost its glory. The centuries that followed, with a small exception during the Roman period, Athens and generally the peninsula of Attica was travailed by wars, raids and invasions from hostile tribes.

Gastronomy and Nightlife

The Greek tastes continue to lead on the stage of our table. Mediterranean raw materials, a diet traditionally coveted, and the essential influences of the Balkans and the Middle East compose a landscape-invitation for the palate and at the same time remain a great attraction for the visitor from abroad. On the other hand, foreign cuisines always gain ground in the tempo of a tireless city that always seeks something new. Successful tasty trials send the Athenians to kitchens with “close relations”, such as the Spanish, the Romanian, the Czech or the Lebanese. Others, as greater lovers of the exotic, veer toward China, Japan, Latin America and its hot dishes or India and its spices. The choices are in our favor...

Athens by night is something that has made the city famous for many decades. For someone to be able to state that they know about going out in Athens, they must have visited dozens of the most well known venues in the valley and surrounding areas. You can find everything, from mainstream clubs, fashion mainstream, freestyle, dance, alternative rock, classic rock, live rock, ethnic, disco, Greek music and more. Imagine large clubs, good times galore and plenty of cocktails flowing. The good thing about the Capital is that most of its entertainment halls have their own personal style that gives a wide choice as to which place suits you best for the evening. The Greek bouzoukia venues are also very famous. The biggest chapter of nightlife consists of the mega-music stages where the most popular voices in Greece perform their hits. Hundreds of musicians get the crowds off their feet and "set the stages on fire" almost every night of the week.
