Many of the ceremonial buildings and gates no longer exist, so some imagination is required, but it is still well worth the visit. While there are some placards explaining what is there, you will get a lot more out of it walking the site with...More

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

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
