This tribute could not but begin with the tiny Dolce far niente. Its colour and signage will undoubtedly remind you of a corner in Italy where you can enjoy delicious gelato.

Ricotta gelato, cinnamon cookie, dark chocolate sorbet, or the one with the green apple. Whichever flavour you choose, two things are certain: you will add a dollop on top and return to Dolce far niente the next time you want ice cream.

Let's move to Green Park in Pedion tou Areos. This historic venue, which became synonymous with Athenian entertainment when it opened in the 1930s, has been given a new lease of life.

You can enjoy a cool Chicago ice cream in an oasis where trees provide shade, and birds chirp melodiously.

It may not be an ice cream shop, but if you want to relax and enjoy your chocolate ice cream, whipped cream, and crunchy almonds, Green Park is definitely a destination.

There is no easy way to describe the taste of Kokkion. If you have not tried it, adjectives cannot capture the absolute of its taste.

The raw materials here, such as fresh cow's milk from northern Greece, are the beginning and the end of their creation. They are combined with impeccable know-how and, of course, memories.
