Try the New “This is (My) Athens” Instagram Filter

Share your love of Athens and get some great tips for enjoying the Greek capital through the fun new Instagram filter.

Dreaming of a trip to Athens and you want the whole wide world to know? Not sure what to do once you get here and you need some inspiration? 

The new Instagram filter “First thing I’ll do in Athens” created by This is Athens, the official visitors’ guide to the City of Athens, is here to help you share your trip and at the same time give you an idea or two about things you can do in Athens in order to make your experience a memorable one.

Simply visit This is Athens (@thisisathens) on Instagram, click on Filters (the smiley face with the two stars), click on the story and press the download image to save the filter on your phone.

Then, create your own story and choose the filter by pressing on it continuously until the “First thing I’ll do in Athens” generator comes up with a tip. For example, it may tell you to “Explore Plaka and Anafiotika,” or “Eat seafood outdoors,“ or even “run like an Olympian at Kallimarmaro.”

All suggestions have been hand-picked by Athenian locals and will help you experience Athens like a local as well.
