Who are we : who stands behind Live-Athens?

Immerse yourself in the world of Live-Athens, a venture born from the friendship of two French expatriates, Laure and Sophie. They spent several years in Greece. Their wanderings through the streets of Athens, their explorations of the Greek islands, their weekends in the Peloponnese, and their moments in local taverns served as the inspiration for launching the Live-Athens website in 2017. It’s a platform crafted to share cherished spots, recommended addresses, travel itineraries, and practical advice: the go-to guide for experiencing Athens and “Greece as we adore it.”

Since its inception, Live-Athens.com has witnessed remarkable growth. We’ve cultivated a thriving community of Greece enthusiasts and adventurous travelers. Responding to your diverse inquiries about Greece, we relish in offering guidance just as we would to our own friends, with the hope that you too will develop a deep affection for Greece. Without our readers, Live-Athens would be insignificant. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support. Thank you! Through your support, Live-Athens has evolved into a trusted resource for exploring Greece.

I’m Céline, an Athenian of more than 20 years. I’ve been part of this journey since its inception, witnessing Live-Athens’ evolution, and I’m honored to now oversee the site. Like Laure and Sophie, I share my passion for Greece through my discoveries, adding a personal touch. To accomplish this, I’ve assembled a dedicated team : Virginie, Evi, Sandra or Panos…

Our approach to Live-Athens is intentionally subjective; we share only what we genuinely love. Every address we feature has been personally visited and vetted. Daily, the Live-athens platform is enriched with tips, practical insights, and advice, catering to both residents of Greece and transient visitors.
