We love blogging about the neighborhoods of Athens. Each one has its own beauty and it’s great to spend some time discovering their unique characteristics. We advise people visiting Greece to find time and explore some places like Nea Smyrni, Kolonaki, Exarcheia or Gazi. These are some of the best districts to spend your morning or evening in Athens like a local. Of course you have to visit the Acropolis area and the other touristic spots, but it is always great spending your day in some places often skipped by visitors. This is a nice way to taste the real Athens.
