My first ever holiday abroad was in 1998 when I visited Greece on a school excursion. I remember I thought Metropolitan Athens was pretty gray, with few landmarks and too many monotone buildings from the 60s and the 70s. Eitan however always raved about the city. To him, it is the nicest of them all. That’s why when discussing moving to Athens, I told him I needed some time to explore it again, but without prejudice. Sure, there is no doubt that Athens is worth visiting. Now, what about living in Athens? After three months there I got to realize there is much more than what I remembered. I fell in love with its ancient ruins, old neighborhoods, large hills and parks, gorgeous pedestrian streets, beaches, food, music, cats, and of course, the people. Athenians tend to be low key, but they know how special their city is.
Athens is like a dense concrete jungle of roughly 39 km2 where more than 3 million people share their lives under the sun. It is home to the single most important architectural landmark in the western civilization, the Acropolis. Its historical, architectural and emotional importance is so great that the whole city oriented itself towards it. The structure is on a hill, surrounded by a lush green area, and low-rise buildings, so it can be easily seen from many different parts of the city. Athens is mostly flat with a couple of hills breaking the monotony: Philopappou, southwest of the Acropolis and Lycabettus, northeast of it. The city center lies roughly within a triangle made by three main squares: Monastiraki, Syntagma and Omonia.
