Time Out: A Street In Athens Among The Coolest In The World
Kolokotroni Street, with its neoclassical architecture, boutique shops, and eateries, has been ranked by Time Out magazine as one of the "coolest" streets on the planet.

A street in the center of Athens has won a place on Time Out’s new list of the coolest streets in the world.

Kolokotroni Street was ranked 12th on the list, due to its shops and restaurants.

“Start at Kolokotroni Square and look inside the National Historical Museum (once the Parliament building), then wander slowly towards Aeolou Street, admiring the neoclassical architecture as you go. Stop for a Greek salad, a burger, or Indian-influenced souvlaki, sip ouzo or a Freddo Cappuccino, then head to some of the merchants selling sandals, books, clothing, art, jewelry and vintage watches,” suggests Time Out.

Additionally, the article recommends its readers to stay at Gatsby Athens, a fun, playful hotel with terrazzo tiles, faux plants, and a guests-only rooftop bar. “Press the lion-shaped button in your room for a (good!) surprise,” it writes.
