Wanderings around Athens

4

In a city as beautiful as this, when I’m not sitting down whiling the hours away drinking coffee or hot chocolate with friends, I love to just wander the streets of Athens.

Why not drink a hot chocolate in Cafe Mon Cheri, Kolonaki?

There are many interesting old buildings to stumble across, people to look at as they go about their every day activities…in short, in order to appreciate Athens to its fullest, you don’t need to just go and view the Acropolis.

Here are a selection of my favourites:

And my favourite one so far:

Wandering down a slightly dilapidated side street in Monastiraki -  and happening upon this beautiful facade.

  1. All so very true….losing yourself in Athens is STILL my favorite thing to do 🙂
    So happy to have found that beautiful facade along with you <3

  2. I enjoyed Athens. We did a food tour roaming the streets going where the locals go. It was during this tour I discovered the street art you mentioned. The street art made the experience memorable.

    • That’s really good to hear Mark.
      Yes, the street art over the past few years has really come into its own. It’s amazing
