As in the rest of Greece, in Athens too, you’re unlikely to have trouble finding a place to eat. The city’s streets swarm with ouzeries, tavernas, plush restaurants, bars and what not- serving everything from authentic Greek food to pizzas, burgers, pastas and whatever else you might care to sample. Traditional dishes like souvlaki, dolmades, tzatziki and moussaka are ubiquitous on local menus, and are usually good. Foodies are going to like Athens, but beware: too many tourists have complained that waiters in Athens have a tendency of getting you food you haven’t ordered - and then charging you for it. If you get something you didn’t order, don’t presume it’s a freebie.

Athenians like to party and the nightlife here is vibrant. Down every other lane is a bar, a dance club, or even a taverna where a rembetika band performs. Rock, jazz, pop, techno and blues are popular; foreign bands and accomplished DJs often perform. Casinos and strip clubs too exist in some parts of the city. Plaka and Kolonaki Square are among the most happening parts of Athens when it comes to nightlife. Athens also has plenty to offer those who prefer cultural performances; ancient Greek theatre, classical music, opera, ballet and folk dances are staged at venues like the Olympia Theatre, the Megaron Mousikis Concert Hall, the Athens Centre and the Dora Stratou Folk Dance Theatre’s venue on Filopappos Hill. In addition, Sound & Light shows explaining the history of the city are held regularly at the Acropolis. Details of events in Athens can be obtained from the EOT’s head office.
