ATHENS

Probably one of the most well-known and most beautiful cities in Europe, Athens is the capital of Greece. Athens still is the city of ancient Greek gods, aspect that can be still seen in the city monuments and remains. Athens is for sure one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The establishment of the city of Athens is lost in a mythological past. Among European cities, Athens is the oldest one and the one with the longest history. This history is still evident in the buildings and monuments of today's Greek capital. Let's take the chance to get to know the many faces of this Unique city...

Ancient history is Europe’s tourism trump card, so why is it that the most ancient city in the Continent has been so overlooked? Compared to the likes of Paris, Rome and Barcelona, Athens has paled in popularity, until now. 

Athens is fast-becoming the destination of choice for a wave of savvy millennial travellers looking for a sun-drenched city break with a difference. If you dare to see beyond Greece’s economically turbulent time, you will be rewarded endlessly.

Welcome to Athens: a place where ancient monuments stand beside hipster coffee joints and rooftop bars. 

Here are 10 reasons why Athens is trending as a city break destination right now: READ MORE…

1. The Acropolis

The rugged and iconic citadel of The Acropolis dramatically towers above Athens, ensuring part of the city remains perfectly frozen in time. The mind-boggling history of The Acropolis dates back to 447 BC but even if you’re not that into the facts, it’s worth coming up here for the breath-taking 360 degree views of Athens. It will be worth it for the ‘gram. 

2. The Coffee Culture

Coffee culture is rife in Athens. Young creatives and business minds flock to the most on-trend establishments in the city such as Tailormade, Spollati or Six d.o.g.s, where outdoor tables are hot property. If you’re lucky enough to get one, pull up a pew, order yourself a ‘freddo’ coffee and prepare to watch the catwalk of passengers by.  

3. The Rooftop Bars

Scattered throughout the city, the rooftop bars of Athens are hard to find. Often hidden away and terribly signposted, each one feels like a secret society for people in-the-know. They’re buzzing morning, noon and night and depending on what time you go you’ll get a different perspective of the Acropolis and the white washed city below.

4. Anafiotika

Until recent years the sleepy hillside village of Anafiotika went by unnoticed by tourists, but now the secret is out. Located just below The Acropolis hill, this tiny village is more reminiscent of a rural Greek island than a capital city. Get lost amongst the labyrinth of narrow alleyways that connect the whitewashed houses.

5. The Greek Food

One thing that remains timeless about Athens is the food. The quality and produce of Greek food in Athens is just as high as on the islands. Feast on succulent souvlaki, fresh seafood, mouth-watering mezzes, baked moussaka and tomatoes that taste ten times more delicious than in London. 

6. The Price 

Greece’s financial crisis has kept the prices of food, drink and alcohol extremely competitive, meaning you’ll be pleasantly surprised when the bill comes. Local wines are very cheap and equally as delicious as their imported counterparts. 

7. The Sunshine

Athens is drenched in sun for the majority of the year, and even if you travel in January you can expect highs of 10 degrees. The optimum time to travel is between March and May, when the skies will be blue and the breeze will be balmy. Whatever time of year you travel, you’re likely to see skies as blue as the Greek flag. 

8. The Boutique Hotels 

Athens is catering to its ever-growing influx of trendy travellers with a handful of boutique design hotels. 

9. The Flea Market 

The saying that ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ certainly rings true in Athens’ Flea Market. This fascinating complex of stalls sells objects that are weird, wonderful and downright bizarre. Prepare to channel your inner David Dickinson and put your negotiation skills to the test.

10. The Old Town of Plaka

Plaka is Athens’ Old Town and easily the most picturesque neighbourhood. Imagine cobbled streets, historical architecture, sun-drenched piazzas and restaurants with white and blue tablecloths. Andrianou is the main shopping street in Plaka and is lined with boutique stalls and souvenir shops. Venture to the end of this street and you’ll find a strip of great restaurants too.

THESSALONIKI

Thermaikos' Bride. The Co-Ruling City. A Sparkling Town.

These are some of the many names given throughout time to Thessaloniki, during her 23-century presence. A welcoming land for three of the world's major religions and metropolis to three empires, Greece's current co-capital was founded by Kassandros, in a privileged position which boosted its financial growth, but at the same time attracted a large number of besiegers and potential conquerors.
Its amphitheater-shaped placement that faces Thermaikos' Gulf includes a series of cultural and architectural landmarks that stand as witnesses for the city's significance as an major urban center for the wider area.

Food, history, gorgeous weather and Hellenic hospitality. Thessaloniki is the city break waiting to be discovered!
