Autumn: Things to do in Athens

Now that the weather is perfect, not very hot and not cold, it is an excellent opportunity to promenade in the city of Athens and enjoy its cultural centers, its hidden gems, go shopping in the old town of Plaka and have a night out with delicious cocktails.

Start your day by visiting the crown of the city, the Parthenon. Climb the rock of Acropolis and travel back in the 5th century BC. Temples made of marble will stay unforgettable in your mind since the energy up there is one of a kind!

If you are interested in how the Parthenon was built, take a walk in Penteli mountain. You will forget immediately that you are 30 minutes away from the big city of Athens. In Penteli you will see a variety of trees and flowers, waterfalls and of course you will finally know from where the marbles of Acropolis were extracted thousands of years ago. 

Later, stroll around Plaka, find local souvenirs for your beloved ones, from ceramics and classic jewelry to Greek traditional products.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is an amazing choice in case you are in the mood for a live concert in its beautiful garden under the stars.

Close your day by having a cocktail by the sea in the Alimos area where summer vibes never end!
