The Athenian Riviera

Who says you need to go to the islands for a bit of sea and sun? One of the most charming aspects of life in Athens, but one often overlooked by the millions of visitors who pass through every year, is the seaside resort area locals like to call the Athenian Riviera. From gorgeous cafes, to bustling nightlife, traditional fish markets right off the boat, yachting and other water sports, and so much more, the area just 20 minutes south of the Greek capital is a world away. Diane visits a fish market where the catch is literally right off the boat, enjoys a sail along the coast, and returns to her own kitchen to transform that urban sea breeze into three delicious, contemporary Greek recipes, inspired by the cosmopolitan bustle and fun-loving spirit of the Athenian coast.
