The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church. Among the standard four- to six-story apartment blocks that typify Athens, Pangrati also boasts some genuinely authentic tavernas and the odd trendy bar.
Honestly the 1st cemetery in Athens is a place, anyone should visit. There are not only famous "residents" such as Vougiouklaki, Kolokotrinis, Schliman or seferis but also neoclassical statues and funerary monuments with remarkable beauty.
Found the tomb of Schliemann to the left of the entrance, raised above other tombs, after wandering aimlessly around the cemetery.
It is certainly impressive, a sort of mini Parthenon, complete with scenes of antiquity.
Worth a look!
This is an expensive restaurant, as you would expect from somewhere with double Michelin stars.

We had the initiation taster menu with two glasses of paired wines and the meal came to about €100 per...
My family had a nice meal here. The pizza and drinks were made with local fresh and natural ingredients. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend to anyone wanting a unique enjoyable meal.
Well worth the effort to find this restaurant in moderately affluent neighborhood of apartments in central Athens.
My wife and I were looking for typical, not touristy, food and we found it!
We heard there was a line for dinner!, so we opted for lunch with the same menus.
Our tour group went here on our final night and food was great.
We had five different appetizers and and an entree. I had beef with eggplant and feta and my wife had pasta primavera.
Service was fast and friendly and restaurant was beautiful but a little warm.
This Cretan cuisine was fresh, healthy and tasty.
You should definitely give...
This small hotel is in an alley behind Zappio park, on the side of Kallimarmaro stadium. It take 15' to walk through the park to Syntagma, or you can catch the bus (2, 4, 11) from Agios Spyridonas stop to Syntagma. The hotel has small rooms, shower and toilet en-suite, a tiny lift, and it is quite clean. If you...
