The salad was extraordinary. So fresh green and tasty! The pizza was good. The service is great. The cleanliness of the toilets is above average. The design is so good I love it. Avoid touristic rush hour, you will enjoy it better off peak.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
