Visiting Gay Athens With the Nomadic Boys
Gay Athens. It’s iconic. It’s dirty. It’s spectacular. It’s hectic. It’s dazzling. It’s unforgettable!
This huge sprawling mess of a city shouldn’t impress. It’s dirty, rundown, gritty – particularly if you’re staying in one of the neighborhoods just outside the center like Psiri or Metaxourgeio (and don’t even get us started on Omonia!). But what Athens lacks in clean streets, it sure makes up for in character. Every day in the Greek capital was like a new adventure for us. It got under our skin so much that we return to it time and time again for more.
That’s right, you better call the Acro-polis, ’cause the Nomadic Boys are in town!
Athens oozes culture with ancient monuments and world wonders (hello Parthenon!) whilst at the same time, it has a vibrant gay scene in the Gazi neighborhood, with a party happening every night of the week. Athenians are night owls, and like the Spanish, they like to eat late and then go out partying till the early hours. We also love getting lost in the village-like Plaka area, shopping in the souvenir shops of Monastiraki, and reminiscing over a romantic cocktail at a rooftop bar facing the Acropolis. Not once did we get bored in Athens. And neither will you!
