Psirri has become an insider destination for visitors to Athens. A neighbourhood in transition, here the traditional craftsmen’s workshops have been joined by fashion designers, art galleries and theatres, resulting in a vivid mix of people and creativity.
Its central location makes it an ideal point to start your day. Whether a stroll up to the Acropolis or a casual hike to the Philopappos monument, with all major attractions within walking distance, and Monastiraki metro station only a 2 minute walk, nothing is farther than a hop, a skip and a jump away.
When you return after a long morning or afternoon of exploration, you can relax in one of Psirri’s numerous restaurants and cafés amidst their loyal local patronage.
Named after the pottery workshop that quite likely operated in this location since before the classical era, with its neoclassical façade and the preserved byzantine finds in the yard, the hotel Kerameion brings together the city’s history in one space.
