Athens has been included on The Telegraph’s list of “Europe’s 20 Most Amazing Cities for Eating Out in 2019”.
According to a feature published in the online edition of the British daily newspaper, “European city breaks can be defined by those all important restaurant choices… while a memorable meal is a must.
Athens has a fine range of places to eat, from down-to-earth traditional tavernas to upmarket restaurants serving fusion cuisine,” The Telegraph’s travel experts say.
“The area of Plaka is undeniably pretty, though some of its restaurants are aimed at tourists and can be a little disappointing. The city centre is where you will find some excellent so-called modern tavernas, serving classic Greek dishes with a contemporary twist.”
The very best cities in Europe for eating out also include Copenhagen, Paris, Barcelona, London, Rome, Lisbon, Edinburgh, Venice, Budapest, Reykjavik, Berlin, Florence, Dubrovnik, Madrid, Vienna, Bruges, Porto, Seville and Bordeaux.
