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).
Athens 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). Agia Paraskevi, Halandri and Holargos are also worth a visit, with their beautiful street markets and café-bars.
Agia Paraskevi is a northeast suburb of Athens, about nine kilometers away from the city center. Built at the foot of mountain Hymettus, Agia Paraskevi is one of the few suburbs of Athens to retain plenty of trees, and offers good opportunities for leisure activities, such as trekking, jogging and picnics. A beautiful route on the mountainside leads through the pine trees, to the small monastery of Saint John, known as "the hunter" in the area. There are spectacular views at the summit, to all Athens as far as Piraeus.
The mountain Hymettus, a true botanical paradise, with a height of 1,026 m and length of 16 km with 44 different types of orchids alone is an oasis for people visiting Athens. Covered with pine forests and small lush valleys, with well-marked paths leading visitors up to green slopes, every season hides special delights.
A small lake at the middle of the forest decorates the area and it is a nice stop at the long walk around the mountain. There are sites of cultural importance in the area as well, such as the Monastery of Kaisariani and the protected by Natura 2000 Kaisariani Aesthetic Forest. The Monastery of Kaisariani is an Eastern Orthodox monastery built on the north side of Mount Hymettus in the late 11th century by the Macedonian Emperors.
