More information about Gazi-Kerameikos

The entire area is a typical example of an old town in Athens adorned by beautiful stone buildings with distinct neoclassical features.
Despite the further renovations by the city authorities, Gazi won the hearts of the Athenians with the plethora of cozy restaurants, trendy cafes, small bars and Greek restaurants which add to the picturesque atmosphere of the entire district.
The area is also one of the busiest ones in terms of nightlife, as it hosts several nightclubs that get cramped with people during fall, winter and spring!

Technopolis, the former gas factory which stands in the middle of Gazi, is now used as a cultural center hosting many concerts and special events throughout the year. It is very close to the city center, located right in front of Kerameikos Metro Station.
