Heat Wave

An Athenian summer story ft. Alkistis Giraud

Athens, in summer. For many, way too hot, for others, the most relaxed and quiet time to enjoy the Greek capital. We met with Alkistis Giraud for a quick shoot and even quicker chat in the centre of our favourite city. Check out her "insider" tips if you are planning a gateaway to Athens soon - plus she is revealing her fAV swimsuit!

AV: Summer in Athens: give us 3 words that first come to your mind. My ones, for example, would be be sweat, rooftops, jasmine-scented-streets

.

AG: Cycle-rides, iced-tea, walks

AV: Give us an insider's tip for someone who finds themselves in Athens for a day.

AG: Surely in one day they will not have enough time to discover and enjoy the magic of this city.

So, there you go; my tip is to change their tickets and stay more to get to know the city - because she is beautiful.

AV: Favourite summer walk.

AG: Around 7-8pm, when the sun goes down, and the sky takes on pink and orange shades, I walk on the hill of Philopappos.
