Athens, my city is large, dirty and noisy. It’s a city that never sleeps. It does have it’s good points though; it’s close to the sea and has fantastic weather most of the year-round. The cost of living is not too bad either. Rents are not excessive and the local food markets are a good source for locally grown produce.

I did not realise that long distances and commutes time were part of everyday life here. When selecting an area of residence, it is best to avoid the centre, if possible, due to higher crime rates, and try to find an apartment in the suburbs. Though, again, one should be cautious and look into the transportation options available in each area. On the whole, while Athens may not be a pretty city, it has a character that reflects centuries of history and I would unreservedly recommend visiting the museum of the City of Athens, a hidden gem within the city’s heart, that informs visitors of the Athens’ modern age.

Athens is a diverse city like many others in Europe, but in some ways it maintains its authenticity. Before moving to Athens, anyone should do their research. The rents vary, some neighborhoods are better than the other, but overall it is worth it. From almost anywhere downtown, you can spot the Acropolis or visit museums and places where the old incorporates the new.
