Psiri is a multicultural and colorful neighborhood where you find cafes, restaurants and tavernas on every corner og in every street. Monistiraki metro station is on line 3 from the airport. Warning: if you don't like tagging, romans, narrow streets, foreigners, small shops, tavernas with bad chairs - find yourself another part of Athens.

Such a good visit, everything we wanted from a Greek restaurant, friendly welcome, varied well priced menu, cold beers and very good quality food. The extra came from the locals creating a super atmosphere and some impromptu traditional singing. An excellent meal and atmosphere.

Nice, cozy quiet area, where mostly locals hung-out. At night all cafes, bars and taverns are open, music everywhere, very interesting grafiti paintings on the building. If you tired of tourist crowd near Acropolis and Plaka, go here

Well, it's a place where you can find lots of ways to enjoy, but it's something like a mix of everything. Good ad quality spaces, along with others that you might won't like, just the next door. Very noisy on weekends and every day during summer. Interesting mixture I would say, but not for my taste...

Many local craft shops here making shoes , leather goods, shops refurbishing furnitures, junk shops. Some weird restaurants. Quite different from the tourist shopping streets such as plakka. Chanced upon a good and well priced souvlaki shop τα ΜΠΙΦΤΕΚΙΑ by following a queue.

The Psiri area is situated near the Monastiraki Square and is full of small coffee shops and tavernas with traditional Greek food and music in very good prices. Colourful little restaurants, chairs outdoors and several bars offering drinks and Shisha. Lots of flowers on the side of the narrow pedestrian streets old houses fully renovated and painted in bright colours.... More

Small neighborhood off Ermou with narrow colorful streets and surprising things at almost every corner: graffiti, coffee shops, bars, sort of quaint and remote and yet very close to the bustling Monastiraki and many attractions. If you have some free time, go for it.

Look, what you see in Psiri depends on what you are looking for in an area. If you are looking for posh shops and people genteelly walking their dogs through attractive gardens, then this is not for you. This is the bric-a-brac end of Emou Street where the second hand traders have their shops. It is however, the beating heart... More

This is by far the heart of the City of Athens. One of the best places to visit and see the Greek current culture very close. This is not a place for tourists really...

Staying in Psirri / Gazi

Neighbourhood Profile
Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighbourhoods Psirri and Gazi provide some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an interesting blend of original small businesses with the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of Keramikos, then cross busy Pireos Street to find yourself in Gazi. With the huge Technopolis performance and art complex converted from old gasworks at its heart, you really have to come at night to appreciate this maze of bars at its best, although a daytime stroll will allow you to admire the excellent street art.
