Where to find Free WiFi in Athens

Did you know that the city of Athens provides free public WiFi access at several points in the city center? The great thing about this is that residents and visitors alike can surf the internet for free, and speeds are actually pretty darn fast, too!

•Syntagma Square
•Kotzia Square (on Athenas Avenue, between the central market and Omonia Square – across the street from City Hall – okay, perhaps in all honesty I might not feel so great sitting with my laptop in this square, it is in a pretty “colorful” area … but if you are staying in the area there are some cafes along the side of the square where you may be a little less conspicuous with your laptop)
•Thissio (a much better choice in my opinion for surfing al fresco is the Thissio area, love Cafe Chocolat for their desserts and their views. And though our Athens Heritage House has free WiFi for our guests, sometimes it can be fun to hang out in a cafe and surf, so this is a fine choice for folks staying in the Heritage House or anywhere in the Thissio area)

There’s also allegedly free WiFi in  Technopolis in Gazi.

•At ” Technopolis ”
•Keramikos Square
•Korean Market Square (Metaxourgiou)

Access is very simple, just follow the steps shown on your internet browser when you link to th city of Athens network on your laptop or smart phone.

Wireless connectivity is very fast, while the capacity of each service area is from 4Mbps up to 24Mbs depending .

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
