The Parthenon was former temple dedicated to Goddess Athena, during the reign of the Ottoman Empire, it was also turned into a mosque.
Don’t be fooled by the art and architecture in Athens, and think that Athens will not have a nightlife. Because the nightlife in Athens is pretty kickass! Catering to every taste and person, there’s again something you’d find interesting. And locals don’t exclude outsiders from joining into the party, because of course, the more the merrier! There are Jazz bars like Allotino & Cafe Boheme while there is also a 70s themed discotheque called Cinderella that plays music from the 70s and 80s! The food, oh the food, fresh seafood, vegetables and different dishes with phyllo pastry, the greeks love to eat and feed, so food is always a priority!
