Psiri is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Athens, located north of Monastiraki and Plaka. In this area, you will find many abandoned buildings, even though the atmosphere of decadence has been balanced out over the years and Psiri has changed a lot. Some of the neoclassical buildings have been restored and a lot of cool bars and shops have opened. Today, it attracts many young Athenians who enjoy the blend of traditional and modern character of the area. Although Psiri offers many charming cafes, restaurants and shops to visit during the day, the scenery is much different at nighttime, when the local bars come to life. Famous for its nightlife, Psiri is popular among young people and the music creates a lovely atmosphere.
