Rediscover Athens – A phototour

Now that traveling abroad is impossible and the lockdown has made us reevaluate things, it is time to rediscover and appreciate the beauties of our country. Let’s start with our city. Just make a walk around and notice all the things you had for granted and never stopped to watch and taste. How long has it been since the last time, when you …

Stared at the city from Areios Pagos
Wandered around the streets of Plaka
Rediscovered Anafiotika
Climbed up Mouson Hill for a different view of the city
Took a break at Petraki Street or Monastiraki Square
Walked through the history of the city at Aiolou Street
Had lunch at a small tavern in downtown Athens
Remembered tastes of your youth at Stani or To Koulouri tou Psyrri
Grabbed a spoon and searched for the best ice cream in town
Got lost in the streets of charming Mets
Caught the vibe of a changing city in Kypseli
Stopped to have a look at places you simply just pass by
Visited again the reborn Pagrati
Looked at the sunset above Kastela and Mikrolimano
Let the city surprise you

Athens is resting and always waiting for us to return. Don’t her down. Love it again and you will be rewarded.

According to the words of Terry Pratchett: “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
