Love. It doesn't have to involve flowers, kisses under street-lights, great nights in bed that leave you knackered the next day, expensive dates or even more expensive gifts: it can just mean souvlaki! We mean being in love with food but then again, they say that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach. For couples, the way to love might be through visiting Greek's ancient capital, Athens.

Badoo, an internet dating website, has recently published its rankings of the world's most flirtatious cities, according to the results of a recent poll it conducted with members, the Huffington Post tells us. The number one spot went to Athens, with Rome coming eighth and London coming in at a shocking 57th position!

'The ranking comes as little surprise to Greek travel authorities. 'Athens is a seductive city, with a hedonistic lifestyle,' Victoria Kyriakopoulous, author of The Lonely Planet Encounter Guide to Athens, is quoted by the Telegraph as saying. "Athenians love to party and they love to talk. They love the game.'

Ah! Maybe most of the flirting that goes on in Athens is between locals and visitors, rather than between visiting couples...those old charmers, the Greeks!
