NileGuide Expert tip:
Go on a Saturday to catch the laiki, or street market, on Kallidromiou Street, then escape the crowd to the hill for a picnic of your finds. (Don't forget to wash the fruits and veggies!)
Also called "Lofos Strefi," this urban green space is beloved to the neighborhood of Exarcheia. It has a commanding view of the city and can be accessed easily and quickly from the city center. On the way up, you'll encounter a good number of restaurants and tavernas preferred by locals.
The surrounding roads of the hill include Poulcherias, Emmanouil Benaki, Eirinis Athineas, and Anexartisias.
