Psiri area is very close to the Monastiraki square. Many decades ago it was an undeveloped area. It isn't elegant like Plaka but it has a distinctive atmosphere. I like it more from Plaka because is a still labor class district. I love the remained...More

When Psiri first emerged in the Athenian night scene, the novelty it brought with it was the rough edges of a decadent post-industrialised end of town. In the early 90's, it boasted few but excellent restaurants, bars, theatres. As time went by, the new additions...More

Perhaps it's my age, but I'm not a fan of graffiti on every building and much of it being non-artistic. There are a few interesting and arty murals in Psyrri, but Agias Theklas is atrocious. The place needs to be revitalised and in a positive...More

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

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.

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
