1. A city without cats

Athens is home to tens of thousands of cats. 2500 years ago, though, Athenians only knew about cats through the fabulous stories on the strange customs and practices of ancient Egypt, the original home of the cat.


How to get here & where to look

Anafiotika offers great views of Athens, a city that once had no cats. You don’t really need to look at anything in particular, just enjoy the view and the friendly neighborhood cats.
