Walking Around in Athens

Athens is a haven for food, art, culture, and history. Walking the city is one of the best ways to experience its sights and attractions like a local. The best place to start walking around Athens is Syntagma Square, which is located right in the center of the city. At the top of Syntagma Square is the iconic Parliament Building, which was once the King's Palace. The square also leads to Ermou Street, the city's main shopping avenue that ends at Gazi, where nightlife comes alive at dusk. Parallel to Ermou Street is Metropolis Street, which hosts the largest and most elaborate cathedral in the city, situated next to another historic church built around 1050. For refreshments and food, nothing beats Aeolou Street and the Psiri neighborhood. These two areas of the city are lined with small cafes, bars, and restaurants serving everything from just coffee to vegetarian foods. These are the places to be when the hunger pangs hit. Along Aeolou Street is Dimarchos Square, which hosts the city hall and is a favorite for those who want to feed pigeons while relaxing.
