- Kapnikaréa - Rebetika urban songs started in 1920 by folk musicians & Greek immigrants from Turkey, singing about joy, love, loss, and sorrow. The word is connected to the adjective "rebetis", which means a person connected to some kind of subculture, thus some songs were prohibited for many years.

- Sandy beaches - are only 20 min from the center by tram or by bus. Although most Athenians do not swim so close to the city, it is always nice to walk by the seaside for a deep breath of sea breeze!
- Drivers — Walking — Pavements - Drivers don't usually respect the white-line crossing, so always look to the left and to the right before you cross, even if the green light is on. Pavements and roads are not very well conserved, thus slippery, so beware and avoid flip flops.
