One of the most coveted features of the Greek capital is its love for entertainment. Laughter, socializing, companionship, passion for action and humour are inextricably bound up in the Athenian way of life and Athens displays its own distinctive style in the best possible manner. How exactly? By offering plenty of opportunities for fun and entertainment for all ages, every taste and … every hour of the day and night.
A strong, aromatic start
The daily marathon of fun starts early in the morning with the first coffee, which many consider “sacred”. Athenian cafes keep up with the latest trends in order to satisfy the needs and wishes of their demanding clientele. If you want to enjoy the full experience, do as Athenian university students do. Meet your friends in one of the many cafes in Kolonaki Square, Solonos or Voukourestiou St. and find out the latest news over a game of backgammon.
When shopping is a pleasure
Once Athens has well and truly woken up, it’s time for a walk around the shops. Whether it’s shopping therapy or window shopping, you are bound to be excited by the variety on offer. The more demanding shoppers will find what they are looking for in the boutiques of the city centre, Kifissia and Glyfada, while in Ermou St. you will find well-known international brand chains.
A tasty, stylish break
And after you have walked up and down Athens’ longest shopping street, you can relax in the elegant cafes and bars in Agia Irinis Square, which has developed into one of the best known haunts of the capital’s trendy youth. The square also boasts restaurants fusing all the latest styles in the gastronomic firmament.
Fun at all times…
A late evening walk around Monastiraki and its neighbouring areas is ideal, not only so you can admire the emerging, pioneering Athenian street art, but also because it will inevitably lead you to spend an unforgettable night in nearby Gazi, which currently holds the reins of the city’s night life.
….and for all ages
Besides its love of entertainment, the Greek capital is also famed for a special characteristic: its talent for creating opportunities for its visitors to enjoy themselves all together, regardless of age. Nowhere better is this talent illustrated than in Allou! Fun Park, the largest entertainment park in the country, and the most popular fun option for young and old alike. Allou! Fun Park has two separate parks which will thrill both the young and the more mature visitors: Allou! for teenagers and young-at-heart adults and Kidom, a family paradise for those with little children, specially created to excite even the hardest to please of your little princes and princesses.
