Restaurant Picks: Around the Kallimarmaron

Pangrati, bustling and densely populated, is very near the center and situated next to the more picturesque Mets, which can boast of neoclassical houses and the impressive Kallimarmaro, the ancient stadium where Athens marathon runners end their route. You can combine a visit there with lunch at one of the many restaurants in Pangrati or Mets.


Most restaurants and tavernas accept credit cards and reservations,

the feast of the Dormition of the Virgin, the city empties and many venues are closed.
Lunchtime is generally considered after 2 p.m., while most Greeks sit down for dinner around 10 p.m.
