Do it like a local

Welcome to Athens.

Today you decided to live like the locals.

You will spend some of your free time enjoying your iced coffee in the sun and fooling around in a cafe, in a square.

Athens is a city with many squares and many cafes.

You took the blue line of the subway and got off at the Megaro Mousikis stop a few meters away from Mavili Square.

A small, green paradise next to the Center but not in the Center.

Named after a great Greek poet, Lorenzo Mavilis, it is famous for the bars and the cafes - all tiny like the square itself - the canteen that during the night offers "vromiko", a typical Athenian street food (sandwich with toasted bread and stuffing from ingredients depending on the customer's taste - usually sausage, french fries and various sauces and salads) and the statue of the most popular Greek actress, Aliki Vougiouklaki.

You’ve just learned three basic things about the locals: How and where they drink coffee, what’s the most common Athenian street food and who was (and still is) their favorite actress.

This is Athens. And this is you in Athens.
