Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Everyone can enjoy Greece. - Oct 3, 2017
I think it is an excellent city for everyone since it has so much to offer. Families love it since there are plenty of parks, malls, museums which plan kid friendly activities, ec. Singles and couples love it since there is a great dining out scene and cafe culture that encourages meeting people. I have heard it is difficult as a single woman here though. - Dec 20, 2016
Good for all. - Sep 7, 2013
Absolutely! Even though I would definitely spend a lot of time traveling the islands, as well as the other interesting places in the interior of the country. Not many parks in Athens, but miles of beaches in the south-east and west/south-west of Attica, the prefecture (state) where Athens is located. - Jul 14, 2012
Yes. - Jun 30, 2010
Great for all. Greeks adore children. There are lots of things to do as a family, single or couple. - Jan 6, 2009
Yes on all counts. Single women often date Greeks and seem to like it better here than single men. The local women are not as attractive as other Europeans to most men. - Dec 27, 2008
Yes to all of the above if you're flexible and can handle a few challenges. - Jun 20, 2008
