  • Inside, this is one of the smallest Cathedrals that I have seen with just 120 seats, but it is beautiful to see, with some lovely plain coloured windows and other intricate features, and a huge colour...  more »
  • Beautiful church in central Athens, in Mitropoleos Square. Finally the construction is over and the scaffolding is down! This is a "must see" in Athens. Even if you only stop in for a few moments, you...  more »

  • Very large and modern Greek Orthodox Church. It's the largest one I've seen in Greece. It's worth a visit but there are much older and more beautiful churches in Athens.
  • Cool church but nothing much too it. Don't need to spend a ton of time here but see it if you can
  • At last the ladders have been removed so we're able to see the whole church. Bell tolls at the half and full hours. Inside all the pictures are exquisite.
  • As everything in Athens is beautiful, this Cathedral has an exotic beauty
  • Nice place to view, but square is very crowded

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
