Explore Athens

Welcome to our country and to our city!

We did not intend to publish another guide, like those you will find in a bookstore or in an information kiosk. We wanted to create a free press to talk about Athens in a more realistic way. As travellers ourselves, we enjoy finding interesting guides and magazines to read in every destination. This is a good way to explore the culture and enter the reality of the place we visit. That’s why we thought it would be a good idea to create something like this for you. Our articles try to show you Athens beyond clichés and reproductions of formal pictures.

We aim to share with you -even a little bit- the soul and the identity of the city that will host you for a few days or more. We want to show you details that deserve your attention, streets that are ideal for long walks, neighbourhoods that if you hadn’t read about, you would have not visited.

Join us to feel the cohesion of the city, its contrasts and its identity. Whatever is real is nice, isn’t it? Have fun!

Ethnic cuisine in Athens throughout the last years, has experienced a great boom. All kinds of restaurants serve dishes from every corner of the world and we experience an interesting variety of flavors in our dishes.
Walking in the streets and having your eyes and ears open, you are going to find the place which is made for you. Rock bars, tapas bars, jazzy-soul “drinkeries”, smaller or bigger places, expensive and luxury choices, or low budget but still high quality destinations are here, next to you.
In Athens you are not going to miss two things: food and history. Both of them are everywhere. Both of them are precious, but not expensive. The numerous museums of almost every corner of this city prove that, if you like to expand your knowledge while vacating, you are in the right place.
The “Memorial Site 1941-1944” and the Art Space “STOart KORAI” at 4, Korai str., operate within the framework of the Corporate Social Responsibility of  “The Ethniki” Insurance Company, the largest and a longer-lasting insurance company in Greece.
