The Best Photography Spots in Athens

Exploring a new city is always exciting and if you’re like me, it’s fun to hunt for the best spots to snap photos. During my short visit to Athens, I created a list of some great spots to go for photography. Many of these locations also have historical significance, so it’s a two-for-one!

  1. Aeropagus Hill

  • For great views of the Acropolis
  • I used my drone to capture a few of these photos… (not sure how legal that was but it was far enough away from tourists).

2. Panathenaic Stadium Athens

  • A great place to visit because of the Olympic history
  • We went to the very top row to get a view of the whole stadium
  • Ticket required for entry

3. Plaka Neighborhood

  • For great street photos and food, Plaka is the place to go.

4. A for Athens Bar & Resturant, Rooftop

  • We didn’t make it here, but it’s located right in Plaka and has incredible views of the Acropolis. Head up to the rooftop bar for the best views.

  • Hike to the top of Mount Lycabettus for incredible views of the entire city of Athens and the Acropolis.
