This district is famous because of its culinary backstreets, “Just a ten-minute walk from Athens’ buzzing historical centre, the laidback Kerameikos neighbourhood seems to live in a magical world of its own.
“It’s a place where old and new, Greece’s storied past and often turbulent present, tradition and forward-looking creativity all coexist happily together. At the weekly street market, the neighbourhood comes alive in a riot of sights, smells and flavours. In recent years Kerameikos’s low rents and old-time feel have lured creative young Athenians to the area, where they have opened inventive restaurants, bars and cafés along with galleries and theatres.
Joining Kerameikos’s rich trove of existing old-school establishments, these new spots have helped create one of Athens’ most exciting dining and cultural scenes,"
