In addition, you will soon be able to order the issue from anywhere in the world through our e-shop, or download a digital version form on our website.

Free from the intense heat and overcrowding of summer, we think that winter is Athens’ finest season, enabling visitors to enjoy leisurely strolls through the city’s historic neighborhoods and explore some of its lesser-known cultural and architectural gems. In this 144-page magazine, we help you take full advantage of this quieter, more laidback time of year. We take you on a scenic walking tour of the historic center; learn about the remarkable life and career of the legendary Greek-American opera singer, Maria Callas, on the occasion of the centenary of her birth; meet the archaeologists who have painstakingly pieced together data from almost 1500 rescue excavations in the city; trace the path of ancient marble from Mount Penteli to the slopes of the Acropolis; and catch-up with all the latest news about the campaign for the return of the Parthenon Marbles, the world’s longest running cultural restitution dispute. 

As ever, we provide you with all the up-to-date information on cultural events and openings this winter, including the latest temporary exhibitions of both ancient and contemporary art, and where to find some of the city’s best eateries. Six creative Athenians will give you their best insider tips on what to see and do, and where to shop. Meanwhile, on page 44, we take a closer look at the incoming city mayor Haris Doukas’ plans to boost Athens’ environmental profile and put sustainable development at the top of the agenda.     

All of this and more. So don’t miss your chance to pick up a copy of Greece Is Athens Winter 2023-2024 this weekend – it’s one to savor.
