1. visit “Gazi” area

Gazi is the “Athenian Soho”. Home of the artistic “tribe” of the Greek capital, it hosts contemporary exhibitions, fashion shows, galleries ectr. The nightlife here is vivid and all kinds of bars, clubs and restaurants mix together offering a surprising result.


2. “Kolokotroni street(vertical street to Stadiou)  

one of our favorite places to hang out while in Athens centre. Don’t miss “booze” cooperativa, a place where booze, art and shopping meet together. Try also “bar tessera” for its warm atmosphere. If you are an amateur of minimal style pay a visit to Orfanidis shop. The staff is very helpful there and the clothes will not let you down. 


3. “IANOS” bookshop

situated on Stadiou street IANOS editions house is a place where book lovers will find their heaven. In addition the café of the first floor offers cool atmosphere to discuss, read a book, buy from the small shop, hear a lecture or, from times to times, enjoy a live band.


4. “PAUL” bakery

the French bakery with the long tradition situated on Panepistimiou street is usually very busy ! People do the line with patience in order to enjoy delicious deserts, snacks and several types of bread. Yummy !


5. Benaki museum (in Kolonaki)

situated on Koubari & Vassilisis Sofias str. this private museum hosts more than 40,000 items, illustrating the character of the Greek world. Don’t forget to have a cup of coffee or even a lunch on the roof top restaurant offering great views to the national garden (park). The museum’s shop is also a must. Don’t miss it !
