My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 – Filming Locations in Greece

The highly anticipated third instalment of My Big Fat Greek Wedding has finally been released. Hitting the big screen, we take a look at where it was filmed in Greece. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 follows the Portokalos family on a journey back to their homeland Greece for a family reunion.

Plaka, Athens

The capital of Greece, Athens, was a filming hotspot for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 and the majority of the filming was around the Plaka salt pan, in the Plaka neighbourhood of Athens. One of the world’s oldest cities, Athens has a rich history that spans over 3,400 years. With ancient landmarks, a vibrant culture and historical significance, add Athens to your Greece bucket list.  

You can enjoy a day trip to Athens from Sounion which is located along the coast just an hour away and offers beautiful natural surroundings as well as a scenic marina and plenty of watersports options.  

Athens is home to a number of ancient landmarks including the Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring the temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, the iconic Parthenon. With a thriving cultural scene, Athens delights visitors with its culinary delights from traditional Greek dishes like souvlaki to the bustling central market with lots on offer.


The island of Corfu was another filming location for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 and it’s no surprise why! Famous for its beaches, Corfu is a beautiful island in the Ionian Sea and is home to stunning landscapes and rugged coastlines. For a luxury island escape, look no further than Corfu for sun kissed days in the Mediterranean.  

Corfu has a long history which dates across civilisations including the British, French, Venetians, and Greeks. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Town of Corfu showcases some well-preserved Venetian architecture and culture so is well worth exploring.  

Corfu is also a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors with numerous hiking and walking trails through the lush countryside to embark on. Visitors can also enjoy an array of watersports from sailing to windsurfing, or why not enjoy a boat trip along the coast to discover some hidden caves? 

Whatever you choose to do, you will no doubt enjoy the serenity of the island with beautiful sandy beaches, excellent cuisine and a unique culture.
