 A vibrant neighborhood

Aghia Paraskevi is a bustling suburb on the Northeast corner of the Athens basin, where the city begins to slope upward Mount Hymettus (1,024 meters or 3.000 feet high). If Athens is one of Europe’s safest cities, Aghia Paraskevi is one of Athens’ safest (and prettiest) areas. ACG’s beautiful 64-acre campus is the last vestige of the city before urban development gives way to the Mt. Hymettus national forest. As a result of its special location, ACG offers members of its community easy access to some of the trendiest nightlife in the city as well as some of the most spectacular nature walks in Greece.

Within walking distance of the campus is a multitude of restaurants (from traditional Greek tavernas and souvlaki eateries, to burger joints, to gourmet establishments and a variety of ethnic and regional food purveyors). 

In the area around Aghiou Ioannou Square, there are numerous all-day cafes and nightclubs that operate until the early morning hours. Because of Greece’s mild weather, most of the wining and dining takes place outdoors from mid-April until late October. An interesting point is that a “cafe” in Athens is just what its name suggests: a place serving coffee, tea and refreshments along with light snacks. Do note;  waiters in Greece will not rush to give you the check so as to empty your table for another customer. At a Greek cafe, you can sit and enjoy your coffee for as long as you like!
