My grandmas’ yard, full of flower scents and many wonderful, childhood memories.

I am not able to answer! I am a vegetarian!

Mythos by Evelyn, opposite to Apostolos Petros and Pavlos church. The best handmade jewelries by far!

TGIFridays. I really enjoy the Quinoa Burger.

Rumors, without a second thought. When there, I feel like I go back to my teenage years.

At Madame, located in the heart of the city, you can find amazing, extraordinary cocktails.
