5 BEST instagrammable spots Athens!

We think Athens is stunning and here are 5 photos why!

Athens, a city of ancient wonder and eternal beauty!

Often considered the cradle of western civilisation and the birthplace of democracy, Athens is a city that has given a lot to the world. It is easy to feel inspired when you walk in the steps of great dramatists such as Sophocles or deep thinkers like Plato. It may be a modern world but some things never change like the human desire for creativity, learning, and evolving… and where better to do that than in the greek sun!
While home to countless museums, Athens is anything but stuffy and provides a stunning natural backdrop for any Instagram aficionado!
Some top photo locations we recommend are;
safestay athens rooftop bar

1) Safestay Athens!

  • Location Agias Theklas 10, Athina 105 54, Greece

A stunning panorama from the roof of our terrace bar, which can only be made better by sharing the experience with your friends and perhaps a cocktail or two!

2) National Archaeological Museum

  • Location 28is Oktovriou 44, Athina 106 82, Greece

On the off chance, there aren’t blue skies in Athens and you need to seek refuge indoors, may we recommend the national archaeological museum!

This stunning Neoclassical building holds some of Greece’s most stunning treasures such as Ancient Greek art, sculptures, metalwork, vases & jewelry.

Its temple-like facade also makes a stunning background!

3) Lycabettus Hill

The highest point in Athens is Lycabettus Hill, from which you can get a stunning panoramic view of the city.

It can be reached by a short hike, or if you’re feeling lazy, there’s a gondola to the top.

Not just a stunning view, however, Lycabettus hill is also home to a picturesque church and, in the summer, there are even concerts held in the Lycabettus open-air theatre. Why not get a snap with the whole shyline?

4) Allou Fun Park

  • Location Λεωφ. Κηφισού, Petrou Ralli και, Ag. Ioannis Rentis 182 33, Greece

Athens, while famed for its ancient temples, also has plenty of modern delights! This amusement park is a great place to relax and let loose as well as being a perfect backdrop for your next great shot!

@keepingupwithfahdah odeon heracles athens

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus

  • Location Dionysiou Areopagitou, Athina 105 55, Greece

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus, situated at the base of the acropolis, is a stunning roman amphitheater. Originally built around 161 A.D, it is still used to host performances today and is arguably one of the best places to experience the classics.

For any theatre lover, this is a must-see and any instagrammer a must snap!
