Psirri is a great neighborhood that borders Monasteraki at its hub, Plateia Iroon. I will always love Plaka (which is not far) but Psirri is more of a locals area and it doesn't have the overwhelming touristy vibe that has overtaken Plaka. Psirri has great...More

Psirri is a fantastic part of Athens. Full of bars and restaurants. Doesn’t have and hustle and bustle of Plaka and feels a bit safer. A short walk from the square where the metro is. Look out for a place call Little Kook with a...More

Just off Athinas street, Psirri is centred on Plateia Iroon. Some of the best restaurants in Athens are here and they're slightly cheaper than the ones in Plaka. Easy to visit about a 10 to 15minute walk from Syntagma.

This is one of my favorite parts of the city. Not so crowded and touristy as Plaka, with many excellent restaurants, tavern and bars with vibrant atmosphere, I really enjoy walking its narrow streets and mingling with locals.

The Psirri neighbourhood is just a stones throw away from Plaka and the Monastiraki square. It is a vibrant and happening neighbourhood with a much more local feel to it than that of Plaka with less tourists and more locals. Home to the super trendy...More

Just next door to Plaka but more of a local place. Daytime very peaceful, night time buzzing atmosphere for food and drink well worth a visit

Nice neighborhood, here is full of restaurants, bars and cafes. There are also many people, but at the same time the place looks calm. I think there are some of the best Greek restaurants here.

Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a
difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
