What are some great spots to listen to traditional Greek music in downtown Athens? I love bouzouki especially, and would love to see some talented musicians performing it live. Have any of you been to any rebetathika or restaurants with live music that would have some performances to listen to? Thanks everyone!

If you’re staying right in Central Athens near The Plaka, Cafe Kapnikarea (off Ermou St.) has live Rembetika music from 2:30 in the afternoon and again from 8 - 11 at night. It’s not a fancy place like the late night beachfront clubs, but it’s reasonably priced. You can have drinks & mezes or dinner - all delicious. If you’re lucky, you can even join the dancing on pedestrian Ermou Street. Family-owned for many years, it’s a little hidden gem!

I agree, Glyfada is great! There is bouzouki music all around, but it is hard to plan. Every time I try to plan, I can't find anything, but I've stumbled on some great music by chance. I have found bouzouki music in Glyfada at one of the restaurants!

Researching the Temple of Poseidon

I am going to visit Greece soon to take some photos and enjoy the country in general (I am a photographer). One of the stops I plan to make is to the Temple of Poseidon and I was told to go at sunset. What do you guys think of that advice?

Anyway, ahead of the trip, I thought I would research the place a bit.... Does anyone have anything to add?

LAST MINUTE OFFERSON GALILEO!

If any one is lucky or has an opportunity to be on Galileo they will never ever forget these experiences.Many years I formulated an itinerary for Aris Drivas Yatching and Galileo was in Mykonos for an initial practice and presentation sailing around the Cyclades!I didn't have time to go sailing with her, just being on board and seeing her again moored in Syros for many days was just magical..

Has anyone here seen a performance n Epidavros?

I am so fascinated by Ancient Greek history and from what I understand, some of the ancient theaters are still intact and performances are being held there. I've been research Epidavros and noticed that they hold performances there in the summer. Has anyone been? What was it like?

I've seen footage online of people marveling at the amazing acoustics, and I want to experience this for myself.
