You just entered Exarchia area, a charming and very lively neighborhood, traditional a meeting point and home to many students and artists. The center of the neighborhood is Exarchia Square which is at the intersection of
Themistokleous street which comes from
Omonia, and Stournari street which comes
from Patission street by the Polytechnion. It is a seedy little square with a number of
cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs. Most of the really cool stuff is on
the small streets around the square.From Exarchia, crossing the Neapoli neighborhood, you can climb the verdant Lycavittos Hill. From its top you have a view of the entire city, all the way to the sea. On the other side of the hill is the Kolonaki neighborhood, whose boundary is Vassilissis Sophias Avenue, one of the most grandiose streets of Athens with beautiful buildings, many museums (Cycladic Art, Benaki, Byzantine and Christian Museum, War Museum, National Gallery) and green areas.
The historical centre of Athens can be divided into three areas, all totally different from each other and fine examples of the three main historical periods: 1) The archaeological area, the green belt of the city, is a concentration of the most magnificent monuments of classical Greece situated inside an enormous pedestrian area which links parks, green areas and archaeological sites. It's a unique place of extraordinary beauty! Within the park there are the capital's main archaeological museums. 2) The ancient quarters, nearly all pedestrianized, have been well preserved and are full of exceptional samples of Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Neoclassical architecture. They are the ideal place for people who want to discover Athens of old times. 3) The Modern Area of the historical centre has been the institutional, commercial and vital centre of the capital for the last two centuries. In this area you will find our neighborhood, Exarchia.
