Shopping in Athens

One of the most popular places to go to in the center of the city is the Attica department store located in the center of Athens. One can find all kinds of products there from clothes, shoes, cosmetics, jewelry, bags and even home equipment and decorating items. You name it, it has it. Around it there are multiple coffee shops, theatres and museums offering a full evening of satisfaction all in one area. On the north side of Attica is the Kolonaki area, the best place for high end shopping in the city with all the big fashion names.

On the south side of Attica, is Ermou street. A road full of fun, fresh brands and shops leading to the ultimate street shopping experience of Monastiraki.
Plaka and Monastriraki are situated around the Acropolis and offer a unique experience combining walks through the old cobblestone roads and traditional flea markets and bazaars.

Greek Gastronomy

Greek gastronomy has recorded a history of around 4,000 years, with especial characteristics based on pure and unique quality goods produced on Greek soil. In fact, it was Archestratos who wrote the first cookbook in history (330 B.C.). In truth Greek cuisine has four secrets: good quality fresh ingredients, correct use of flavorings (herbs) and spices, the famous Greek olive oil and simplicity.

Olive oil, honey, salt and cheese may be the signature tastes one remembers after having a meal here but there are many more ways to impress your palette and satisfy your cravings. Due to the ever generous Mediterranean sea, a Greek table is almost never complete without various delicious fresh fish.

Finally when it comes to drinking, wine has been imbedded in the Greek culture since the ancient times and is still taken and drunk very seriously by Greeks today as there are hundreds of wineries around the country and countless wine bars in all cities and islands. Other famous Greek drinks include Ouzo, Raki and the mysterious Mastic that can only be produced in one island in Greece as the plants of its origin are unable to grow successfully anywhere else in the entire world for reasons still unknown to this day

Athens Nightlife, Cultural Life and Entertainment

One of the main characteristics of Greek Culture tourists notice is the vibrant lifestyle and unique hospitality of Athenians.
From jazz bars to pubs and the clubs to the traditional Greek Bouzoukia, Athens is a vibrant city offering a wide range of options that appeal to all sorts of lifestyles and tastes.

Dinner in Greece is served relatively late compared to other countries, reservations are rarely booked before 9 pm and bars never close before 2 am. Clubs in Athens can stay open until the morning hours making every night into a special occasion where one can meet new people, as Greeks have a tendency to meet, greet and include people when they are having fun.

As a night starter, Greece is one of the few countries in Europe where all cinemas play films in their original language with complimentary subtitles, therefore allowing our visitors to enjoy the pleasure of a movie the same way they would at home country.
