Points of Interest
The most impressive road of Athens, linking Syntagma Square to Ampelokipi district. It was formerly called Kifissias Avenue, as it led from downtown Athens to the north suburb of Kifissia. Although this avenue is no longer a classic boulevard, it remains one the most charming roads of the city, with some of the city’s most beautiful buildings, museums and parks.
A park with a statue of Eleftherios Venizelos (created by the sculptor G. Pappas). In the rear section there are three stone built constructions, which house the Athens Municipality Arts Centre and the Eleftherios Venizelos Museum. Opposite the park is a row of three neoclassical buildings; the hospitals Aeginitio, Aretaeio, and Alexandra.
The building is a typical example of modern architecture in Athens (1959-1961), designed by the famous architect W. Gropius.
This is one of the most vibrant squares of Athens, there are many cafes, bars and restaurants in the area, buzzing with activity all day long. It is a prestigious residential area, located near Lycabettus Hill and the busy Vasilissis Sofias Ave. and Alexandras Ave.
It is a listed public building, constructed in the 1880’s in the neoclassical style, and it has been housing a hospital since 1912. The 17th c. Agios Andreas chapel is located right next to it.
The first glass skyscraper of Athens (1971-1973) – one of the few such buildings constructed in the greater urban area of the capital. A complex of 25-storey and 12- storey buildings, the tower of Athens houses mostly company offices. In front of the Tower of Athens, there is a small villa with a garden, dating to the 1920s when Ampelokipoi was a rural area.
