Athens is a city with glorious history and vivid present. It is a magical city worshipped by gods and people with plenty historical monuments, such as Acropolis, the ancient Theatre of Dionysos, Odeion of Herodes Atticus, Olymbion, Roman Market, Panathinaiko Stadium (also known as Kallimarmaro).
It is a city of different aspects. A walk around the famous historic triangle, Plaka, Thission and Psyrri, the old neighborhoods, reveal the coexistence of different eras.
It is worthwhile to take a stroll through the central streets with their art déco, art nouveau and antebellum buildings. Luxurious department stores and small intimate shops, fancy restaurants and traditional taverns, all have their place in this city. Visitors can also enjoy its nightlife. Athens by night totally changes.
The options for entertainment satisfy all tastes varying from the famous bouzoukia, which are the leaders in the Athenian entertainment, to the numerous theaters all around Athens offering a different type of entertainment.
Athens offers plenty of choices, since visitors can also explore its beautiful suburbs and neighborhoods, which are close to the historical center.
The southern suburbs, located on the coast of the Saronic Gulf, such as Faliro, Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni offer many opportunities to take a walk along the seaside, while you will also find many beautiful organized and free beaches, large shopping centers and nightclubs (especially during the summer). In the Maroussi suburb (north of the centre) are the facilities of the Olympic Athletic Centre of Athens, where the majority of the athletic events were held during the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.
Halandri (next to Maroussi) is also worth a visit, with its beautiful street markets and stylish cafes and bars.
Especially in Kallithea except from the numerous cafes and bars and the great shopping center you can also visit the Harokopion and Panteion Universities, the Municipal Gallery, housed in the Laskaridou building, one of the first dwellings in the city and of course the Faliro Coastal Zone Olympic Complex on Kallithea beach from the Sports Pavilion (Faliro) to the Olympic Beach Volleyball Center.
