Greek cuisine is very tasty and you can fint more vegetarian dishes (vegetarian not vegan , because meny dish have included feta cheese ). My propositions are Dolmadakia , fakies , revitia , Spinach pie , zucchini with feta cheese , greek salad , potato stew ,more greek vegetarian dishes you find here http://www.belmare.gr/corfu-blog-taste/The-most-tasty-vegetarian-food-of-Greece/

Being vegetarian myself, you can find vegetarian options as good as everywhere! Disagreeing with some previous answers, souvlaki places are actually some of my favourites to go to - order a wrap, just without any meat (for example, I usually order a wrap with tomatoes, fries, and tzatziki)! They tend to be cheaper than the meat ones and pretty filling.

Avocado restaurant, amazing food and very nice staff. Their address is here http://www.avocadoathens.com/ but they close quite early in August.
They don't have it in Avocado, but Imam is a dish worth trying.

Skal,

One of my favorite Trecking routes while in Athens is the hike from the mnt Parnitha Casino, to the Mpafi mountain refuge (http://www.mpafi.gr/en)
Its an easy 40min hike, with great food at the end and lovely view

Hi! Well I'm 22 and i came to athens when i was 18. No safety issues ever. Maybe omonoia and victoria at night especially in winter are not great choices. But it's nothing like others capitals in terms of safety and from may to october you can go anywhere anytime as there are people almost in every area. :)

Hi Barbara,

In general, Athens is like any other big city: it is no more dangerous than London or Paris. However, there are a few places that I would try to avoid after 10 in the evening: Omonoia (and the tube/metro station) and the area around. Dont forget: as long as you have big company with you, you should be fine any time and place.

is not a dangerous city, but avoid Omonia, Victoria and Metaxurghio during the night

What is the main street with bars that have free entry and will be busy most nights?
Is there parties only on Friday and Saturday or can I find somewhere busy every night of the week?

Filippos Georgiou , Athens, GRC, 2 months ago

All bars in Athens have free entry.If you are in the centre,go to Kolokotroni str.Agias Eirinis,Psyrri or Karitsi square

Aspasia Pramateftaki , Athens, GRC, 3 days ago

You can also try the area Karytsi square in the centre. This place is always busy.

Kriton Orfanos , Athens, GRC, 2 months ago

Try also the area in and around Exarhia sq.,if you are interested in the "alternative"scene.
