Magical autumn in Athens

September 12, 2020

It may be the perfect season, in the perfect place….
For the romantics among us, it’s the ideal time of the year. For others it’s the chance to seek out activities and new places with a cosy atmosphere to brighten up their days and nights in the city.
Reviving nature walks, mugs of hot chocolate, an appetite (!) for meze, theatrical performances and eye-opening art exhibitions, are just some of the reasons to get into an Autumnal mood.
Autumn is about having a great time and so we have put together our favourite suggestions for getting out and about and looking forward to the months that follow.
The best way to enjoy your weekends in Autumn, are small trips close by. No need to go too far to be able to visit Syrou Forest with friends or family, close to Kifisias Avenue on the borders of Kifisia and Melisson. This unique forest of exceptional natural beauty also houses ancient ruins. It’s a great place for walking, outdoor gymnastics, jogging, cycling or for walking your pets.
It’s not possible to visit Athens in the autumn, without going to the theatre. If you’re a theatre lover, then check out the new season of shows in advance and don’t forget that this is also the time for the opening of new art collections too.
And finally, hidden away in the heart of Athens are small atmospheric windy roads that are so welcoming and warm, enough to make any visitor to the city, feel right at home.
Autumnal Athens is waiting for you…
