Kastella Kastella Kastella Kastella
The neighborhood of Kastella took its name when the men of Georgios Karaiskakis fortified themselves to small fortresses of the area during the Greek Revolution of 1821. At the hill of Kastella gathered the Athenians in 403 BC and Thrasyvoulos as their leader expelled the Thirty Tyrants reestablishing democracy. Kastella with the wonderful old mansions is one of the favorite destinations for anyone wishing to admire the excellent view to the city of Piraeus and Athens.

The smaller and most photographed port of Athens, Mikrolimano, is very close to Faliro and combines a beautiful view with many choices, mainly entertainment but also food.
The first port of ancient Athens maintained its dominance until the creation of the port of Piraeus by Themistocles, while in the beginning of 1900, the tram already operated since 1830, it was converted into a resort with the mansions of wealthy Athenians.
Gazi is located southwest of the intersection of Iera Odos with Pireos street and is now the rising area in the beginning of the 21st century, combining harmoniously the industrial tradition of yesterday with the present day.
