Top Ten Things to do in Athens

Top Ten things to do in Athens, become an Athens expert in a few simple steps!

Acropolis & The Agora

The ancient citadel is located on a hill overlooking the modern city of Athens.  Although there are other sites similar to this one around Greece, this is deemed the most important and houses many important tourist sights such as the Parthenon and the Agora, the ancient marketplace.  Don’t miss the National Archaeological Museum.

Kerameikos

While you’re in the area Kerameikos is also worth a visit. Located to the North West of the Acropolis Kerameikos was the potter’s area of the city and the modern English word ‘ceramic’ comes from here.

Filopappos Hill

An ancient Greek monument built to commemorate the death of Prince Philopappos sits on top of the Filopappos Hill.  Only two thirds of the facade remains, but major restoration work were carried out in 1899, to preserve as much as possible of this iconic monument.

Temple of Olympian Zeus

South-west of the Acropolis, construction of the Temple of Zeus began in the 6th Century BC.  For some centuries, this was the biggest and most important temple in the ancient world.

Athens Flea Market – Monastiraki

A major attraction for bargain hunters, the Monastiraki area of Athens is one of the major shopping districts of the city.  Great for bargain hunters and hosting some of the city’s best independent and boutique stores, you won’t be able to help yourself!  If you’re looking for more main stream shopping then don’t miss the city’s busiest and best known shopping street Ermou.  The Central Market of Athens has some of the city’s best fresh produce, so if you’re looking to buy in some food to cook in AthenStyle Hostel’s guest kitchen then you’ll be spoilt for choice here.

Technopolis – Gazi

Situated in the city’s old gas works, Technopolis is an industrial museum.  You’ll find the Gazi area very close to the Acropolis, and a short walk from the Kerameikos ruins.  The building hosts all sorts of concerts, events and festivals so make sure you take a look at their schedule for when you’re in town, it’s definitely one of the top ten things to do in Athens!

Cine Psiri

Want to while away a hot summer evening in true Athens Style?  Join the hosts of locals and tourists that flood onto the streets of Psiri, the old town centre of Athens, and into one of the many open air summer cinemas that crop up all around.  The films are not generally the newest, but the atmosphere is second to none and you’ll usually have a choice of drinks and snacks with which to enjoy the movie!

Lake Vouliagmeni

Just to the south of the city of Athens, Lake Vouliagmeni is one of the most exclusive areas of Athens, and you’ll soon see why.  The water of the lake is crystal clear and the veiws are to die for. In true Greek fashion, there’s plenty of ruins to get to grips with while you’re here too!

Lykavittos Hill 

A limestone crop rising 277m above sea level and the city below, Lyklavittos hill is THE best place to get a view of Athens at night. But don’t worry, you won’t have to trek all the way up here as there’s a funicular railway system built in, taking you right to the top in just 10 minutes.
