Snowy Athens: Once every 5 years!

Do you think Athens is always sunny? 🌞

Do you think that is never cold in Greece? ❄️

Think again, we have some news for you!

Living in the historical centre for the last 6 years yesterday we woke up to the rare sight of the entire capital being blanketed in a thick covering of snow 🌨️🌨️.

The first time our cat saw snow in his life! He was so excited!

Featuring a thick layer of white, fluffy snow, the Greek capital’s famed monuments and neighbourhoods have taken on a new beauty which only adds to their allure.

Our neighbourhood covered with snow!

Although heavy snowfall is not uncommon in Greece’s northern and mountainous regions, it is very unusual in Athens, making its snowy monuments a rare sight.

Guess what: The Parthenon looks even more gorgeous dressed in white. So, we decided to have a big walk in the city to take photos and share with you a rare glimpse of snowy Athens.
