The current form of Kifissia started coming to life after the Greek War of Independence, during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Over the years, Kifissia has housed wealthy and influential people, including politicians, celebrities and artists.

What to do

In addition to the aristocratic architecture, Kifissia has a few places of interest really worth visiting, such as the Goulandris Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Telecommunications.
If you happen to be there during late spring, the Kifissia Flower Show is one of the biggest local happenings, transforming the area into a hotspot for gardening lovers.

At the center of Kifissia, you will find a wide variety of shopping malls and stores with luxury brands, such as Valentino, Prada, Chanel and many more.
Charming cafes and restaurants, stylish bars, lovely patisseries, art galleries, luxury boutiques and open-air cinemas are available.

    Athens is a place I visit at least twice a year on work, and my impressions of the city, if I were to be realistic, are that the city is not a lot different from any other European metropolis, where a kind of chaotic harmony exists between the ancient and the modern, the moral and the immoral, and the clean and the unclean. If you can actually stop complaining about all the negative aspects and start looking at the positive side, I am sure you will find that the city has a lot to offer, be it its bustling nightlife, or the grand archeological sites, or the fabulous museums, or the mouthwatering cuisine.

    One of my favorite pastimes is to climb on the metro and take a tour of the city. The ride in itself is a journey through the history of Athens, opening up a whole new world of shiny marble and ancient artifacts which have never failed to fascinate me. On my last trip, I visited Kifissia, a green and elegant suburb in the northern part of Athens. Located around a beautiful square and a botanical garden, Kifissia has become a retreat for many Athenians who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

    I enjoyed taking a walk around the square with its many restaurants and cafes offering an excellent choice of food and wine. They even made their own ice creams! I went for the cheese pies and spinach pies, followed by a delicious rice pudding and a frappe to wash down the goodies. With sinful treats like these, it is little wonder that the square is buzzing with sport clubs, gyms and spas!
