I am Fotini and I was born in Nafplion but, for the last 9 years, I have been a resident of Athens. I am one of the Athens Pride organizers, head of our volunteer program. I also love sports and crime fiction. The way I first fell in love with Athens was by driving my motorbike. The landscapes that opened in front of me took me back to the capital of the 70s.
As the seasons change so does the face of the city. In every change, there are different places that can seduce you.
An ideal spring day starts with breakfast at Harvest, and continues with a trek from the present to the past in the historic yet modern center of Athens under the shadow of the bougainvillea in the streets of Plaka.
The Metaxourgio low light is full of all kinds of music, scattered chairs and groups on the pavements. It is the most appropriate destination for summer afternoons which generally lead to endless nights. A good suggestion here would be to start with Myrovolos (Gay & lesbian Bar-Restaurant)
If you want to feel isolated from the center while being in the very center of Athens, your destination is Psiri, one of the oldest neighborhoods of the capital. You can spend a whole day in Style and Coffee while admiring colorful graffiti masterpieces.
In an attempt to avoid all tourist options in the region of Thision, the Aloustines is an oasis in the bustle of the area. The same is the case at Petralona, with countless economic choices for beverages and food.
