Kolonaki, the aristocratic area of the centre and a live cradle of culture and quality fun, was and remains the top top choice for every connoisseur.
Located in the centre of Athens, it was traditionally considered the elite district. Nowadays, this is no longer the case as Kolonaki, without losing its wealthy atmosphere, is an area open to everyone and ideal for all tastes.
Historically, it was named after the columns placed by the Turkish in the area in order to put the disorderly Christians into order. Around the square and on the main streets Skoufa, Patriarchou Ioakeim, Anagnostopoulou, Tsakalof and Milioni, there are stylish cafes, bars and clubs for all tastes, restaurants, chic boutiques and famous fashion houses, galleries and museums that guarantee a lovely time.
Politicians and famous artists in particular prefer this part of the city. Lycabettus and Syntagma Square are within walking distance.
