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...

We walked through Psiri every day during our stay in Athens. We almost had our breakfast here and sometimes diner too. They offer good deals on food, snacks and wine. There is often some kind of music either live or from playback. Nice place to spend some time and feed hungry belly.

I really love a walk at psiri and I m not the only one. You need to visit when in town . What I love is the colors and the small restaurants and caffees you spend some time in while taking a walk. It's a great place for all tastes

Visit this neighborhood at night and enjoy the greek music and several pubs and restaurants along the street. If you are looking for a place to enjoy a hookah, you can find it in this neighborhood.

We just left Grill House Psiri When we got there it was way more than full with people. We waited for 10 minutes for a table which was no problem as the waiter was really kind. The place is magical, with music, flowers etc. The things turned badly as soon as we sat and ordered. They brought as dome bread... More

Near touristy Plaka and off Monastraki Square. A slowly gentrifying neighborhood with cool cafes, occasional restaurants, historic and charming old homes, modern-built condos, and some run down housing. Worth a walk once the heat is of if you are in Athens in the summer

Go to Psiri at night. Walk around the small streets and you will find many nice bars, a lot of young people and good company.

This is a quirky little district not far from the markets. It has some of the best coffee and food in Athens. There's a central square where you can grab a decent coffee & some sweet or savoury pastries. Wandering around the little streets is delightful. One of the best areas to explore on foot. Very popular with the locals.

Thank Wendy D

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.
