If you're in Athens, then Friday used to be a great day, because there used to be two papers that hit the kiosks, giving you good reading for the weekend. Alas, both are gone - and so are other sites

EnetEnglish Greek independent press connected with Eleytherotytia. (Not updated since Nov. 2014; Website up 2/9/15; posted 3/11/13)

Athens News A weekly paper that covers breaking news. A bit wider coverage of hard news than Athens Plus. Website isn't the best, however. Especially recommended. But it went belly-up in late 2012. Just kept here as a memorial. (Up 2/18/12; posted 5/27/00)

Athens Plus A 50-page weekly paper from Kathimerini that covers some breaking news but focuses on cultural stories. A weekly 2-page section on one location, ferry schedules, local transport. TV listings. And the best news? It's online in PDF format. Yea! Especially recommended. But it went belly-up in 2011. Just kept here as a memorial. (Up 10/28/10; posted 6/26/09)

Odyssey Odyssey's print magazine is unique - the only general coverage magazine on Greece in English I know of. And it is great - 80 page, slick paper, high graphic content, smart and sassy. It covers everything, it seems: Greek politics, high end travel, places and issues, interviews and news about significant Greek-Americans. It can be critical when it needs to be. The web site is less impressive, but the magazine is especially recommended. (Is this magazine now defunct? Up 3/11/13; posted 12/21/99)
