Location

In the heart of Athens! The area of ​​Psyrri is an area with a long history, which starts from antiquity and reaches to the present day. It is bordered by Evripidou, Athenas, Ermou, Agioi Asomaton and Piraeus streets. Together with Plaka and Monastiraki, they constitute the ancient city of Athens, the core of today's Historic Center. Until the 20th century, the area was mainly residential with a multitude of neoclassical mansions and small poor houses. Later the city changed in appearance and many shops, handicrafts, and workshops were established in the area. Today in Psyrri one can walk around and find a variety of amazing gastronomic experiences, old buildings of architectural value and significance, a ton of street art that covers almost every inch of available wall in the neighborhood, and picturesque little shops that sell antiques and objects of forgotten times.
