ChristmasAthens is a city of neighborhoods, and though the central square has historically been the focus of the city’s holiday celebrations, this year the city has scheduled performances in the neighborhood squares, bringing the joy of the season a little closer to home for residents and visitors alike.  Venture beyond Syntagma to nearby Pagrati, or beyond the winding streets of the Plaka into lovely Thissio, or hop the metro to Ampelokoipi, and enjoy the music and the ambience of a real Athenian neighborhood. Not only will you have a chance to experience real Athenian life , you’ll find cozy neighborhood tavernas, filled with Greek families, hidden cafes and ouzeries, and a chance to to discover a bit of true Athens.
