Welcome to Athens! The last month before Christmas is here. November eases us into colder weather and more and more events are starting to light up the city. Athens invites you to explore unexpected corners and activities!
Sunday Guided Tour at the Industrial Gas Museum
Every Sunday you can enjoy a guided tour inside the historic Gas factory that named the entire Gazi area. It was founded in 1857 by the French businessman François Théophile Feraldi and it illuminated the streets of Athens for 60 years. Along with the experienced guides of the Museum, we follow the gas production line, ‘listen’ to the workers’ stories, touch the machines that until recently filled the city with power and light.
There’s no admission and the tour is wheelchair accessible.

Surprise IX Art Show 23-25/11
The power of art is employed again in order to change life for the better. The artworld reunites to support the homeless of Greece and KLIMAKA NGO’s Programs through “SURPRISE”, artAZ Art Platform’s annual benefit exhibition. SURPRISE is a celebration of art that highlights the social face of Contemporary Art as well as the current artistic tendencies. Every year around 300 small format artworks are collected and then made available to the public for the token amount of 50 €. The reason? To allow everyone to support the effort. Participants cover the entire spectrum of artistic practice: from discovery artists to globally established, as well as a significant number of international artists. There is, however, a catch: the artist’s identity remains secret!
The proceeds from the artworks’ sale are donated to the Homeless Support Program of KLIMAKA NGO.
Visiting hours: Saturday 24/11, 12:00 – 20:00 | Sunday 25/11, 12:00 - 15:00
