Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
The museum is incredible - there is so much to see and you could easily spend the whole day in there to see everything properly. However, the Covid restrictions mean that you only get 10 minutes to see the famous Prehistoric Collection (with the Mycenean treasures), with the staff hurrying you along all the time. Although there is a lot...
At the main entrance to the lovely Pedion Tou Areos is this great equestrian sculpture of the King of Greece.
Unveiled in 1938 it is a dynamic work of art. Portraying a striding horse atop a white pedestal, the King controls the mount.
Constantine was Monarch of Greece for two intervals, 1913 to 1917 and again from 1920 till 1922.
Some of the most renowned and accomplished artists worked on ornamenting this marvellous church.
It is dedicated to the Patron Saint of Athens who heard St. Paul preach in the Areopagus and was baptised in 52 CE. Subsequently he became the first Bishop of Athens.
Walking along Skoufa it presents a majestic profile. It was built in less than a...
"Pop in with a combo ticket after National Archaeological Museum"
reviewed 1 week ago by inyongh743
This little museum is right around the corner from the National Archaeological Museum. Understandably they don't get many visitors (the staff even thought I came to the wrong place!) but it's included on the €15 museum combo ticket so definitely pop in when you're doing the National Archaeological Museum. It's full of Greek inscriptions and the leaflet and the panels...
Located in the centre of Athens constitutes a very interesting choice for all the art lovers! nice exhibitions, easily accessible! You can find there some art works of young Greek artists! Combine it with your walk in Kolonaki or Exarchia district!
We had a recommendation from a local friend to visit this special restaurant but we didn’t quite expect this gem! We arrived to a welcoming atmosphere with cool tunes playing. Some complimentary champagne to celebrate our anniversary was a bonus followed by some delicious cocktails and shrimp & tuna teasers. After some deliberation and advice from Zoe, we chose the...
Fried pork in white wine : )
A great selection of mezze, we tried a lot of options and would recommend them all!
Service was casual however we are in a pandemic!
Worth the wait for sure
And if you aren't persuaded, then they serve some of the best raki we have ever had! No petrol reflux!
I had spotted Trata while planning our first trip to Athens. As it was situated on our way to the accommodation we decided to start our stay there. We couldn’t decide what to order and went along with their recommendations: fish soup, salad, seafood risotto and octopus to share between 2 persons. Everything was perfect as well as the service!
Not too far from Athina Airport. Within walking distance, about 35 mins, from Plaka and Monastiraki. Absolutely enjoyed Continental breakfast every morning (scrambled eggs, omelet, sunnyside-up eggs), European bacon, croissants, etc. Food was Very good. The staff was AWESOME!! Great and fun-loving individuals. If ever back in Athina, definitely will book here again. Absolutely had a Great time at this...
Very good as usual at MELIA. Excellent cleanliness, room, breakfast, very good service and the location in the centre of Athens is the best choice. I ll be back soon. Please keep the price same as now !
My Fiance and I stayed at this Hotel for four nights in August (2019). We've stayed in Athens many times over the last few years and love the city, so much to see and do! The Hotel is very clean, the staff are really helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious, nicely decorated and had a good size bathroom, we...
Hi I stayed with my family in February 2020 . Stayed 2 nights
Good hotel.clean rooms .they offer parking under ground .main town is only 5 euro taxi ride, nice cozy lounge I would stay again .
I came from newyork
This is a great place. The staff are beyond helpful and, while a bit out of the main tourist area, everything is easily walkable from the hotel. The only downside is that the walls are very thin so noise can be an issue.
