Climbing up the side of Lycabettus Hill and bordering the swanky Kolonaki neighbourhood, Exarhia features Kallidromiou Street’s weekly farmers market every Saturday (one of the best in the city) and is peppered with charming cafés, snug rock bars, indie record shops, comic book and model-making stores, and an array of shops selling everything from antiques to local produce.
Engaging the senses, Athenian Modernist buildings mix with colourful street murals and small parks lay hidden in plain sight, offering shady patches of tranquility. The wooded Strefi Hill is just a short walk away, while Lycabettus Hill, with its famous outdoor theatre, is one of the most romantic spots in the city, offering a beautiful, 360-view of Athens. Ideal for an easy hike with lots of picturesque resting stops, or (for an easier ascent) you can take the cable car to the café at the top.
Here you’ll also find delicious food, ranging from traditional Greek, Cretan and Mediterranean, to pizza, tapas, sushi and falafel, plus restaurants catering to vegan and gluten-free diets – and of course lots of bakeries and snack bars, all coming together in a burst of flavours and aromas.
