Imagine wandering around the picturesque alleys in Athens during summer having the sun to follow you where you are going as well! And if you had already been in Athens before in summer you would know that this city can be very very hot, just believe us! And what a better suggestion for you to find a corner of chilling in the centre of Athens? So, we searched, asked and eventually we found probably the best ice cream shop in Athens and this is “Le Greche”.
Her owner went to Italy in order to learn all the best techniques on making ice cream and when she came back, she started to make all the basic ingredients handmade in a small workshop in Agia Paraskevi. The choices are various, from chocolate with prunes and rum, which is our favourite, to pistachio and ricotta with Bergamot Orange. We saw all the different colours, all the different tastes and we smiled spontaneously. It’s magical, because we discovered again the pure senses of ice cream and we felt like a child again, who waits the summer to come and grab as many ice creams as we can! Also, according to spoonuniversity Le Greche is one of the best 41 ice cream shops in Europe! So, it is not only us that recommends this ice cream shop! Another plus, is that it’s in the centre of Athens, a few hundreds meters from Syntagma Square and the Parliament. So, if you are in the area, go and visit it!
Do you know of any better ice cream shops in Athens? If you do, then let me know in the comments! We are happy to keep improving our suggestions and recommendations!
