The old urban neighborhood with the cosmopolitan air of another era of flourishing and renaissance.

The squares of Varnavas, Messolongiou and Proskopon are the centres of the area. Nearby Mets, which owes its name to the beer house of Karolos Fix, is characterized by beautiful preserved buildings, the grove, the steps and the amphitheatric view of Athens, which make it one of the most beautiful neighborhoods.
