We are vegetarian and were recommended this place by a native! They took us in the kitchen and actually showed us their veggie options! Excellent food and a must go!

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament

are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
