What do you like about Athens?
Its "anarchy" you can feel free to do whatever you want and nobody cares.

What do you dislike about Athens?
It's chaotic, dirty, noisy and too hot during summer. Too much grey cement, no colours, no nature. It's also very densely populated.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
The suburbs (north & south), plaka area, monastiraki

How expensive is it?
As in all big cities, it depends on may factors. Average I guess.

Is it safe?
Yes. Only exceptions are the 'ghettoed' city centre (around Omonia square)and the underrated western suburbs, mostly due to the illegal immigrants that live there.

How is the weather?
Mild humid winter, perfect spring & autumn, annoyingly hot summer.

Additional thoughts?
Athens is a nice city, full of diversity, with a very rich cultural life. You can stroll around Plaka and feel as if you're on an island, then move to the central market and feel like you're in an oriental country and then take a trip towards the southern suburbs to have a coffee by the sea. Young Athenians become more and more conscious citizens. On the dark side the city looks ugly, has many grey, chunky buildings and it needs improvement on many levels.
