Explore the Trendy Neighbourhood of Psyri


If you’re looking to escape the tourist crowds of Plaka and head somewhere with more of a village vibe, take a short walk to the neighbourhood of Psyri – also known as Psirri.

Whilst it wasn’t always a go to area (I find this is often the case with these ‘trendy’ areas…) it has now become a hub for independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants and makes a wonderful afternoon wandering around and soaking up the atmosphere.

My favourite bar that we visited was Juan Rodriguez Bar and if you’re after a view, many of the hotels in the area have rooftop bars and restaurants so you can enjoy the local feel whilst marvelling in the lights of the Athenian Acropolis in the distance.
