Could you give me 5 reasons to live in your city?

OK. Here’s a short listicle:

1. With more than 2,800 hours of clear skies per year, Athens is the third sunniest capital in the EU (after Nicosia and Valetta). That’s plenty of daily vitamin D and positive energy.

2. You’ve probably watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding or Mamma Mia! Not all of us have Greek statues in our homes and offices, but we are all family-orientated, we love lively communities and interacting with foreigners.

3. We have one of the highest life expectancies in Europe. We like to think that’s because our hearts are filled with joy. But it’s actually our world-famous Mediterranean Greek cuisine. And that high dose of vitamin D too.

4. Hollywood celebrities flock to our little island of Mykonos to party till dawn. But the real deal is in Athens. With hundreds of choices for bars and nightclubs playing all genres of music, you feel the beat in every nook and cranny.

5. Athens is an ideal hub if you want to travel to remote idyllic islands, off-the-beaten-track places in Greece and other cities in Europe. And you’ll meet plenty of other foreigners or colleagues who think and feel just like you.
