Athens gay guide

<b>Athens</b> gay guide

Athens is a very nice destination for the gay visitor. During the day there are many beautiful things to see, on summer days it has nice beaches. In the evening Athens has got a wide choice of nice restaurants and at night there is a vivid gay night life, with several gay bars, clubs and gay saunas. Like in all Mediterranean countries evening dinner is very late, and gay night life starts even much later.

Where to stay in Athens?

<b>Where</b> to stay in Athens?

The best area to stay in Athens is Thiseio (map). This is a very romantic area, with a view on the Acropolis. From here it is only a 15 minute walk to the gay bars and clubs, and the metro brings you in any other direction.

If you visit in mid summer and want to stay close to the beach, the P.Faliroarea is a good place to stay. It's located next to the beach. See our hotel page for more information and recommendations.
