If you’re looking for an authentic, residential neighborhood experience and a close proximity to all of Athens’ main attractions, look no further than Psyrri. A former slum area that was completely rejuvenated and transformed by young creatives and artists, Psyrri is filled with independent shops, local coffee shops and eateries where you can get a taste of local life. You can walk everywhere from here – including Kolonaki Square and Monastiraki Market.
This is where you want to be if you plan on spending your time sightseeing, walking around and exploring different areas of Athens. The reason Omonia is perfect for a traveler looking for a central location is because it’s right near Acropolis and has easy access to public transportation. Omonia also has a number of restaurants, shops and nightlife, making it great place to stay if you are looking to get a feel of what life in Greece looks like outside of touristy places.
