Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Athens

Modern Athens may not be the center of world democracy as it was thousands of years ago, but it is probably one of the most welcoming big cities in the Mediterranean region. Anyone looking to get to know the locals will have an advantage if they can speak some Greek, but it's hardly necessary. We recommend exploring the cafes and squares of Psirri to see the street performers, grab an iced tea and meet local people. The tavernas are also a great way to get to know Athenian cuisine; from succulent souvlaki kebabs to rich moussaka. If you are heading to a lot of attractions in one day, take a tip from the locals and buy day passes on the buses and the metro to save money. Alternatively, just get about on foot. The city center is walkable and historical treasures can appear around any corner when you book hotels in Monastiraki, Athens with Venere.
