Athens is entering a second Golden Age. Athens is no longer a city that it takes awhile to get-to-know before you actually like it. And better with more opening every week. The streets are clean, hotels have all been renovated and restored, many made accessable to the disabled. The restaurants, tavernas, cafes, clubs and bars stay open late and as many who came discovered, ATHENS ROCKS like no other city on earth.
And if you prefer a more quiet Athens there are parks and quiet neighborhoods that will suit you too. What this means is that anytime of the year Athens is entertaining, whether it is your stop-off on the way to and from the Greek Isles in the summer or if you visit during the 3 other seasons and use it as your base for daytrips to explore the Peloponessos and the mainland. Athens has something for everybody and suddenly the Athenians have good reason to be proud of their city!!!
