The best photo I took in Athens a few years ago was taken in Monastiraki:



This is from a beach in Attica just outside of the city, I don't remember what its called but it was a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city :) Best part of Athens is that its close to so many great beaches

WOW these are amazing photos, thanks so much for sharing!!! 🇬🇷🇬🇷

Is there any update on the wildfires near Athens?

Have any of you spoken to any people near Athens? How is the situation now? What is the aftermath? I am keeping everyone in my thoughts

Monastiraki and Plaka are the best areas of Athens hands down!

Monastiraki and Plaka are the best place for shopping and eating restaurants! They're both really close to the Acropolis and there are many local shops and restaurants. I really love the area and highly suggest that you visit the area and even get a hotel that's closeby because there are just so many things to do. Its pretty safe, which is important because Athens is getting slightly dangerous. :)


What is the best way to get to Sounio from Athens?

I would love to check out the area, I've heard so much about Sounio and the lovely views. My friend stayed at the Grecotel hotel and Ive heard the best things about the location

Are there any areas where US expats hang out in Athens?

As I've posted before, I've been looking to retire in Greece. Kind of hard when I don't speak Greek though, so Id like to make a couple of American, Canadian, UK, or Australian friends who speak English. I'll be in Athens for a while, does anyone know if there are any spots where foreigners hang out?
