Athens in the Spring, a special kind of magic!
There are so many reasons to love spring time:
It’s the season when we can start going out in lighter clothes, without the need to carry coats and jackets. The day gets longer and as summer approaches we start looking enthusiastically for holiday destinations. Every neighbourhood is filled with the smell of fresh blossoms and our spirits are certainly lifted.
Spring is, our favourite season, filled with colours, smells, tastes and a positive outlook on life.
Spring in Athens is especially magical. We can sit comfortably outside on the roof terraces of our beloved cafes and bars, from morning to night, enjoying the spectacular views Athens has to offer. Here we can enjoy catching up with friends and sipping on our favourite cocktails, mixed now with fresh fruits of the season, making them both tasty and more attractive.
We begin looking forward to the summer festivals, preparing ourselves for what’s to come. The open air cinemas slowly are starting to open, showing spectacular movies and at the same time, giving us a much needed sense of freedom! We can get outdoors more, closer to nature and closer to the summer.
No matter how many times you have visited Athens, the magical strolls in Plaka and Monastiraki, especially at night, are a must! In Spring time, with the trees lining the narrow cobbled streets, in full bloom, there’s a whole new feeling about Athens. And the same goes for the beautiful squares in Athens, large or small, open spaces to relax and enjoy time with friends.
The beaches are also calling us now that the weather is changing, perfect for strolling but also maybe for considering our first dip of the season!
What else do we need to realize that Athens is the perfect destination for the season? A sweet combination of a fast paced city with the chilled vibe of a holiday haven. All it takes is one trip there to be convinced!
