More than 11,000 apartments in the municipality of Athens are rented on Airbnb, with an average of 65€ per day. The neighborhoods with the largest concentration of Airbnb rentals are Plaka, Koukaki, the Museum, Neos Kosmos, Pagrati and Vathis Square. 88% of Airbnb listings available for short-term lease are for the entire apartment and 11% are shared or private rooms. The average availability for short-term lease on an apartment is 267 days out of 365.

The three-dimensional (3D) map represents the concentration of Airbnb rentals within 100 meters of each other. Equally high concentrations are found in the Museum and Pancrati. The extracted data is from July 2019, and published by Inside Airbnb, an organization that regularly collects Airbnb open access data for major cities in the world and publishes it online for free.

The protectors of refugee children

They are probably the first and only doctors to examine young refugees who arrive in Athens. The pediatricians Stavroula Dikalioti and Smaragda Papachristidou – due to their efforts and personal interest – have managed to facilitate the refugees’ access to public health, which is provided at no cost, but remains a complicated maze to navigate.
