Highlights

  • National Archaeological Museum Marvelling at the skill of classical artists at this enormous treasure house. You'll almost certainly get footsore before you've seen everything.
  • Strefi Hill Enjoying the view over the city, as well as the uniquely chilled-out atmosphere at Exostrefis cafe.
  • Live music Stumbling on a small bar like Feidiou 2 Music Cafe, with a couple of musicians and a crowd that sings along with every word.
  • Cretan food Sampling one of Greece's proudest and most diverse regional cuisines at I Kriti or another one of the excellent restaurants here.
  • Riviera Watching a classic film or arty shorts at this summer cinema in Exarhia, one of two with appropriately offbeat programming.
