Athens has places that are nothing like the chaos of the city. In close proximity to the center, the noise and the tall, unattractive buildings disappear and are replaced by lush hillsides, paths, and hills with unlimited views!

Below are 5 corners of Athens to set your Instagram on fire!

Anafiotika: Something from the Cyclades

A few meters away from the bustling center you’ll find this neighborhood which is a faithful replica of a Cycladic island neighborhood. Once you leave Plaka behind and within seconds, you’ll find yourself in a location with unique alleys drowned in bougainvillea. The most photographed district of Athens is rightfully first on the list!

Lycabettus Hill

It is a small lung of greenery and optimism in the center of Athens. The view it offers is unique. Take out your cameras and capture Athens… from above!


Located just 68 kilometers from Athens, it is a much-loved destination as it combines a visit to the uniquely beautiful archaeological site with captivating views of the vast Aegean Sea. From the Temple of Poseidon, you can enjoy and photograph the best sunset, which will give you… many likes!

Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center

The premises of the SNFCC are the perfect place for photos! Taking the elevator up to the upper level of the outdoor area, you can spend hours gazing at the coastal road in its entirety. Don’t forget its fantastic library too!

The unknown Prophet Elias, Hymettos

The weather at this time of year is ideal for nature walks and hiking. And if you’re bored of the same old same old, now it’s time for you to learn about the hidden chapel of Ymittos! Climb up, take pictures and enjoy!

Vouliagmeni, at the “hidden” Agios Nikolaos

A well “hidden”, almost unknown, but also abandoned chapel, built in 1947 on a rock, on a slope of the Vouliagmeni neck, almost next to the Vouliagmeni naval club. It is dedicated to Agios Nikolaos as it is located right on the sea. It is a well-hidden secret and at the same time very beautiful as it stands out for its architecture!
