Districts of Athens: Kifissia

One of the wealthiest neighbourhoods of Athens, its trademarks are its cycling lanes, pedestrianised centre, impressive mansions, huge shopping centres and most importantly, its parks. Alsos Kifisias is ideal for children, with its trees, bushes, a mini lake and two fountains. A large flower fair occurs here on a yearly basis.

Traditionally a place where the wealthy and famous reside, Kifissia is filled with many high-end boutiques (many of them along Kolokotroni str.), trendy restaurants and patisseries, the most famous of which is probably Varsos Patisseries (Kassaveti 5). 

Kifissia may be a posh area, but it is not without its fair share of culture. Goulandris Natural History Museum - Gaia Centre (Levidou St., (+30) 210 8015870) is a delight to visit, both for adults and minors.

The nearby neighbourhood of Nea Erythrea has become a relatively recent hotspot of nightlife, with its many stylish bars.
