Thursday 23 October
Greek Group Dinner
ICMA loves bringing their delegates to local venues so they sample the country’s culture and history. We’re going to Plaka, the ancient and historical town that is known to the locals as the “Neighborhood of the Gods”, due to its proximity to the Acropolis and its many archaeological sites. It is clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis, and incorporates labyrinthine streets and neoclassical architecture. We will be visiting its oldest restaurant The Fisherman’s Tavern, to taste the finest traditional Greek cuisine that Athens has to offer. The Fisherman’s Tavern is housed in two old mansions, one across from the other, with the sidewalk in between serving as outdoor dining space. Soak up the sights over delicious food, whilst connecting with ICMA delegates during this one of a kind dinner at Fisherman’s Tavern!
