Athens’ popularity as a city-break destination continues to go from strength-to-strength, generating much-needed revenue for Greece’s economy, but concern for the city’s permanent residents is fast becoming a thorny issue. In this 178-page issue, we uncover the myriad faces of the Greek capital; the constant push and pull between the city’s ever-popular touristic side and the day-to-day realities of what life is like behind the scenes. We guide you on a 10km-walking route around the historic center, brimming with stunning neoclassical architecture, vibrant contemporary art, niche shopping, and more; discover rustic tavernas, serving up the very best in traditional Greek cuisine; present the latest goings-on in the burgeoning craft beer scene; explore the archaeological and industrial treasures of nearby Eleusis, the European Capital of Culture for 2023; and learn about the role of horses in the daily lives of the ancient Athenians.
As ever, we provide all the latest entertainment news, with plenty of insider tips on where to go and what to see and do in Athens this summer. We join seven local residents as they wander the streets, discovering intriguing details about the city’s social and urban fabric, and talk to a group of young entrepreneurs about their original business ideas, adding novelty and excitement to the city scene. Meanwhile, we catch up on the extraordinary work of the Acropolis Museum, as it celebrates its fourteenth year of operation. On page 148, Maro Vasiliadou looks back on two career highlights of the legendary Greek opera singer Maria Callas, as the Greek National Opera announces a series of events to commemorate the the 100th anniversary of her birth.
