SIM card

by roserosada

Hi, several years ago I purchased a SIM card at Germanos; are they still there? Do I purchase it from somewhere else? can anyone provide the address? I will be staying near Plaka, thanks

Re: SIM card

by brotherleelove

Yes, Germanos is still "there". They have stores all over now. There's a store at the Athens Airport on the Arrivals Level down by door 5. That's where I go to buy a SIM card when I first arrive.

Oh, if it is pre paid SIM you have to know that is it is, Kosmosfone or now is know as ONE or Panafone (Vodafone) if you do not use your SIM for more than 12 months the number cease to exist...Happened to me.. :(
Germanos are every were including the neighbouring countries, certainly we have them in Macedonia too.
For new one just bring your passport or ID and you can have new one...

Thanks so much! since I arrive around Midnight perhaps the airport shop may be closed at that time. Which is the location of the closest one near Plaka or Herodion Hotel? thanks

Re: SIM card

by brotherleelove

Check the airport shop first, it might still be open. But if not, there's one fairly close to your hotel, south of the Akropoli Metro Station. Walk out of your hotel, turn left, walk down to the avenue (Makrygianni) where the Metro Station is but turn right, walk south a block or two to the beginning of Falirou (or Faliron) Street. The address is #3. Someone at your hotel will be able to give you more exact directions.

thank ou Brotherlelove, you are too good!

Re: SIM card

And how much are SIM cards usually? I mean would it be worth having a greek one or just roaming using my spanish vodafone one?

Thank you!

Re: SIM card

by brotherleelove

The Greek SIM by itself is just a few euro but then you have to pay more to load in however many minutes you want at your disposal. I'm not 100% sure but I think using a Spanish SIM card will creat some problems with international charges for local Greek people calling you since your calls will be routed through Spain Vodafone and Cosmote are the two most widely-used SIMs in Greece so if you're in Spain you can call their customer service center there and ask about this.

Thank you Brother lee love!

I opted to use my spanish sim card and then my friend rang me at my hotel most days using the landline so it worked out ok in the end!

I had a great holiday too!

I'm glad it all worked out and that you had a great holiday!

Travel Tips for Athens

the Greeks!

by blueangel

My fondest memory was of this little cafe near the youth hostel which is owned by an old man called Max. He gave me free food and wanted to give me money when he knew I was broke. And you can just enjoy a coffee and omelette and talk to his friends...true Greek hospitality! I left Greece feeling very blessed!

The best of Athens

by Christianne

When visiting Athens you absolutely have to see The Acropolis whose summit is 92m above the low city.

Arios Pagos is located in the NW side of Acropolis.It was the place that used to session the Ancient Parliament.

Don't forget to visit the Ancien Market that was destroyed by the Persians and was rebuilt.

When you are in Syndagma (Constitution) square you can see the monument of The unkown soldier located by the Greek Parliament.The guards of the monument are dressed in the Greek traditional uniform of Tsolias.

On the right of the Greek Parliament is the National Garden.

You absolutely must see the Panathinaikon Stadium (Kalimarmaro) located on the hill of Mets.
There,were held the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.

If you want the best view to Athens city, go to Licabettus Hill. The St. George's chapel is located on its top. When I am away from Athens I can't wait to come back and go to Plaka.It is an old quarter around the Acropolis. If you go ther, you will love it. I am sure.You will love the narrow streets, the neoclassical houses, the taverns and the cafeterias.
In Plaka you can buy gifts for your friends.
If you have time go to Monastiraki to visit its Flea Market. Monastiraki is next to Plaka, so, you have to walk for a few minutes to see it.
The picture is from Plaka.

Climb Acropolis, the most...

by maxovna

Climb Acropolis, the most important archaeological ensemble of Greece. Acropolis is a high hill on summit of it you can see Parthenon temple. In VIII century B.C. Acropolis was given to worship Athena, saint patroness of the city. I close my eyes and see crowds of people, the gigantic columns of Parthenon, magnificent view over Athens from the top and the beautiful Greek flag, white and blue, flying on a high flagstaff.

Would You Like Some Acropolis With Your Coffee?

by Jmill42

The best place to take a coffe in the morning in Athens, in my opinion, is along the edge of the Agora, in Plaka. Sitting at a small table, sip a cup of coffe, staring across ruins and one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world just brings life into focus.

Athens is cool.
Coffee is good.
Life is great.

Lycabettus theater

by AndyRG

The open-air Lycabettus theater is used between June-September (basicly at the summer festival of Athens) every year. Artistic performances and concerts -any kind of them, ancient greek drama, modern theatrical performances, flamengo, traditional dances, Greek and foreign singers/groups like Cesaria Evora, Bob Dylan, Motorhead, UB40, Shaolin Monks, Vanessa May etc.- are given at this amphitheatrical theater, with a capacity of 4.500. If the performance is sold out, you can climb at these rocks, sometimes more than 1.500 people can be there...
You can see the northern suburbs of Athens at the background (this mountain is Penteli). There are some other such open-air theaters in different suburbs of Athens, where similar festivals are held (e.x. "Melina Merkouri Theater" in Vyronas, "Petras Theater" in Petroupoli etc...)
