Athens, the land of the sun, offers an unforgettable holiday experience with limitless choices. This city is the historical capital of Europe. Inhabited for more than 3,000 years, Athens is widely known as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. Consisting of a large city center, an urban district and metropolitan area, Athens presents a confusing blend of historical and modern features. Walking around the city center you can imagine following the footsteps of Plato and Aristotle and return to the Gold area of Pericles.
You can visit the early Greek landmarks such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon. These hilltop sights are stunning and the view from the Acropolis and the surrounding temples can only be described as breathtaking. You can also visit, the Acropolis Museum and the National Archaeological Museum, where you can see sculptures, vases, jewelry, and more from Ancient Greece. Another walk in the heart of Athens will lead you to the “Constitution Square” (known as Syntagma in Greek) a large open square which often hosts various events. In this area you can find several of Athens’ most renowned luxury hotels. It’s an intense public transportation hub, and you’ll be able to see the Parliament Building. Pedestrian-only Ermou Str. leads off of it, providing access to Athens’ best shopping destination. If you’re looking for an escape from the center, take the way up to the wooded top ofHill by riding the cable car. On the hill you will find 19th century Chapel of St. George, a theatre, a restaurant and of course a breathtaking view.
However, Athens is not just about history. This city is also an important center for culture, nightlife and sports. In the shadow of Acropolis, you can always discover a new hot spot to spend your night, meet incredible people and create memories. This city never sleeps. Athens is a progressive city open to everyone! The country shares a European mentality shares an European mindset with respect to the rights of LGBT community and makes each and everybody feel like home when visiting. The contemporary Athenian LGBT scene is continually developing. There are no indications of colorful flags, so you need to quite know where to go. The most famous gay neighborhood is Gazi, with the majority of the venues found just around the zone. Stroll around to get the sentiment of the spot. Konstantinoupoleos and Triptolemous Streets are the best points to start your night. Walk your way near Kerameikos metro station, at Iera Odos Str. and Megalou Alexandrou Str. As mentioned, Gazi is the contemporary LGBT Athenian center, where bars and clubs celebrate love throughout the night. In case you’re searching for the best gay clubs, don’t miss Shamone and Sodade2. In the area you can discover explicit spa and sauna venues facilitating only gay men. Appreciate some cozy loosening up minutes. There are more gay spots in Psyrri, Thission, Monastiraki and and elsewhere that don’t clearly say so, such as the bars of Avramiotou Str. (a restricted back road parallel or more Athinas Str., between Ag. Irinis Str. also, Voreou Str.), or the bistro/bar Magaze on 33, Aiolou Str. This spot is the commonplace case of being straight amid the day and turning gay when the sunsets.
