“Tucked away in the heart of Athens, the National Gardens offer a beautiful retreat from the bustle of the concrete capital. This grandiose park was commissioned by Queen Amalia, the first queen of Greece, in 1838 and completed two years later. The Gardens cover 16 hectares of narrow gravel paths and ponds, as well as a small zoo with wild Greek goats, peacocks and chickens. ”

“Philopappos Hill or the Hill of the Muses is a suitable opportunity for an escape in nature, just next to the bustling centre of Athens. It is one of the points of Athens that provide a magnificent view and is surrounded by the districts of Koukaki, Petralona and Acropolis and invites you to surrender to the calling of their wonderful view. It is connected to the hills of the Observatory and the Pnyx, while at its top there is the monument of Philopappos, from which came the name of the hill. It is worth mentioning that as part of the unification of the archaeological sites in 2002 an effort was made to fence the area, so that it could be visited according to a schedule and a ticket, something that was averted after the dynamic reaction of the active movement of the residents of the area.”

“Lycabettus Hill is one of the highest peaks in Athens. You can get to it by hiking up a forested slope – only briefly, mind – or, if you’re feeling lazy, there’s a cable car to the top. At the peak you’ll find one of the most sweeping views of the city. There’s also a pretty whitewashed church called St George, a café and Orizontes, a gourmet Greek restaurant with surely the capital’s most scenic terrace. Concerts are held at the Lycabettus open-air theatre, built on another part of the hill, in summertime.”

“It used to be much denser with trees, more like a tiny forest than a park, but ever since the general reconstruction it went through as part of the gentrification of the neighbourhood by the municipality in the last decade, it’s become more “civilised”, with a small café in its centre, more open spaces etc. There’s also an open-air gym, The Alsos’ main visitors are families and joggers and other people living in the surrounding area out for a breath of fresh air and to get a bit of exercise in, but it’s perfect for anyone who wants to see and feel the Athenian residential parkland life. Bring your book, your gym clothes and/or some music and you’re good to go! Stop at tram stops “Aigaiou” or “Agias Foteinis”.”

“The park was designed in 1934 and its purpose was to honour the heroes of the Greek Revolution of 1821, 21 of whom are depicted in marble busts standing in the park. In the central square of the Park there is a fountain surrounded by many plants that thrive in the Mediterranean climate and create beautiful natural colour combinations, corresponding to each season.”

“This park was created in 1908 in the Pagrati neighborhood, when locals planted a large section of land with pine trees. In 1936 the area was allocated to the Municipality of Athens, which continued planting the area with a wide variety of trees, bushes and other types of Mediterranean flora. The park was once home to a small zoo and a theatre with free performances. Today, the municipality is in charge of the park’s myriad recreational activities. Park entrances are located on Eftyxidou Street and at the junction of Eftyxidou and Spyrou Merkouri Streets.”
