The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church. Among the standard four- to six-story apartment blocks that typify Athens, Pangrati also boasts some genuinely authentic tavernas and the odd trendy bar.
We were just passing, and might probably have given it a miss, but glad we didn’t.
Whilst the stadium has been restored as recently as the last century, the site itself is ancient.
Audio tour included in entrance fee and the hidden museum housing posters and Olympic torches was a real gem.
Lovely view top of the Acropolis from the...
For some reason I found it hard to find this cemetery, which made it even more special. It is not far from the big Olympic Stadium, if that helps. Visiting HS's tomb which looks rather like the Parthenon was a truly meaningful experience. There are other worthies buried here and worth bringing a map for finding those, but HS's tomb...

You will see only Athenians in this restaurant: politicians, journalists, professionals... half inside and half in the heated terrace, where one can smoke. Rich catalogue, well prepared dishes, excellent prices
Amazing! We could have eaten one of everything on the menu, each dish we tried was divine.
Pork tenderloin stuffed with figs or fresh tagliatelle with mozzarella should be one of your choices. Good choice of wines and cocktails. Super informed staff who clearly love their job and the food!
But the food is not only one that stays unforgettable....
The place is usually crowded but if you get to to sit at a table you get to taste a pretty fine burger. And you have a bunch of interesting options to choose from. I've heard the pizza and pasta are also pretty good, but I'm a burger type of man. The staff is friendly although service can be a...
The rooms in Zappion Hotel are small and quite basic yet they are clean and not too expensive, and staff is extremely friendly. Great location close to the old part of the city and near to bus/metro stop!
"Decent place if not for wifi trouble and the need to pay for a hot shower"

- keep in mind you need to pay .50cc each time u want to take a 'hot' shower .. the water was super cold so it's not possible to take one otherwise. The shower lasts for 7mins and u need to put a 50cc coin in the box again for another 7mins, The box is outside so u need to...

Snugly located- excemplary if you have no friends in the vicinity- discreet, prompt, courteous- chance to meet others that you know not positively excluded since there are no separate through-puts- airconditioningfine in the hot months- bathroom facilities modern and hygienic- noise surround not pronounced- differential pricing on the basis of room character available- ask for quiet and secluded
