New Issue: Greece Is Athens Summer 2022 Out This Weekend

Pick up a copy of our latest issue dedicated to Athens, available with The New York Times International Edition – Kathimerini English Edition wherever international press is sold.

The latest print issue of our magazine, Greece Is Athens Summer 2022, will be available this weekend (30-31/7/2022), together with The New York Times International Edition – Kathimerini English Edition, everywhere international press is sold throughout Greece.

After more than two years with restrictive COVID measures, tourists are returning to the Greek capital in droves. Locals, meanwhile, are rejoicing, spending their evenings outdoors with friends. The city is inviting and exciting, thanks to dozens of new cafés, bars, restaurants, boutiques and shops, hotels and cultural attractions, and according to recent surveys, a great majority of tourists are happy with their stays and wish to return again.

But as more visitors than ever arrive in Athens, and the average length of a stay in the city is slowly rising (from 2.5 to 3 days, towards the city’s strategic target of 3.5 to 4 days), we realized the need to consider the obvious: what should visitors do with that extra day?

This city of our hearts boasts many secrets, many attractions, and many vibrant neighborhoods. Over the 144 pages of our latest issue dedicated to the Greek capital, we‘ve pulled together our best tips for city experiences, new arrivals, urban havens offering respite from the summer heat, and upcoming events.

We also guide you through the neighborhood of Kypseli and the Attica basin’s fabled Tourkovounia hills; present the trendsetters bringing something new to the Athenian experience; and discuss some hot debate-worthy topics: How much tourism is too much? What is going on with the Parthenon Marbles? Where should we eat?

Those who can’t get their hands on a copy this weekend needn’t worry. Greece Is Athens Summer 2022 will also be available for free at locations around the capital (to be announced), as well as through our e-shop, through which you can order from anywhere in the world, at only the cost of postage and packaging. You will also be able to read and download the issue in full on our website in the coming days.
