Perfect choice for everyone in Athens. The lake is fabulous inside a rock. You can drink cafe or eat snacks. There is also the option to go there for dinner or lunch. In the summer concerts take place in the lake.

Good food, lovely surroundings! Go there! And Garra rufas in the water - a wild outdoor spa! Mad!!! We went with kids and we needed to keep them a bit quiet. A lot of kids here would not work. But we loved it!!!
