For lunch try delicious appetizers and ouzo, tsipouro or raki in the taverns of the Athonos Square or Modiano Market and why not ‘pita gyros’ (Greek dish made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie, normally pork, chicken, beef, veal, lamb or mutton, or other alternatives such as feta or haloumi cheese, and usually served wrapped in a flatbread such as pita or sandwich, with cucumber, tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce), the dearest and hearty ‘fast food’ of the city in a ‘gyradiko’ (fast food with gyros).

At night, enjoy Greek music and bouzouki. Get ready for fun, songs and dance ‘a la Greek’ till dawn in one of the large spaces that host known Greek singers or any music scene with live Greek music. You’ll have a great night tonight! More here
