Who is behind Living Athens?

Who are we? Céline, Virginie, Evi … expatriates or Greek.

We discover Athens with a lot of curiosity and enthusiasm. We love this city.

The advantage of living in Athens is that friends and family often come to visit us. And of course, as such, we introduce them to our adopted city. With passion. We first take them to our favorite places. Then we give them our best addresses. Finally, we take them on a tour of the must-see sites as well as the less touristy places.

And we wanted to share this experience with you!

We each have young children. Therefore, we want to show you what you can do with your family in a fun and enjoyable way.

As we are very fond of the Greek gastronomy and its multiple flavors, we put a special emphasis on introducing you to our favorite taverns, cafes and bars.

But what we like most is to find little frequented places, secret addresses, ideas for walks off the beaten track. We will also tell you about the must-haves, intelligently revisited. We want to share all this with you.

We are living a great adventure and we invite you to Live Athens with us!
