put together a great list of the best wine bars in Athens, where visitors and locals can get a taste of the best wines Greece has to offer!
Heteroclito, a French bistro with a name meaning heterogeneous, is very vintage inside and has a bar that takes up most of the first floor. Since weather is nice most of the year in Greece, outdoor seats along the pedestrian way are perfect.
