The Monocle Travel Guide Series – Athens
Founded in London in 2007, Monocle magazine is at home all over the world. Thanks to its network of international offices (London, New York, Toronto, Zurich, Istanbul, Tokyo, Singapore) and more than 30 correspondents worldwide, the team always delivers valuable first-hand information.
The Monocle Travel Guide Series is aimed at travellers who do not see themselves as tourists, but want to move around in a foreign city like locals. With an in-depth understanding of the dynamics of the metropolises, the Monocle team puts together the best insider addresses that are indispensable for a city trip off the beaten track.
Think of Athens and the first things that spring to mind are ancient ruins and camera-toting crowds. But there’s much more to the Greek capital than temples and tourists. We’ve looked beyond the admittedly awe-inspiring Parthenon and explored the city’s modernist marvels. For now, though, strap up your sandals and allow us to introduce you to this chaotic but ever-so-charismatic city.
