Kifisia Hotels

A northern suburb of Athens, green and glamorous Kifisia has long been a haunt for those who enjoy the finer things. Its luxury villas historically served as summer retreats for well-heeled Greeks, who came to escape the hot bustle of Athens. Today its leafy boulevards still cater to upmarket tastes, with fine restaurants, chic al fresco cafes and glossy designer boutiques. Whether you fill your days with relaxed meandering or espresso-fuelled shopping sprees, the sites and experiences of big and bustling Athens are just a metro ride away.

Things to see

The suburb’s community centrepiece is the elegant Kifisia Square. A lush park adorned with palm trees, flowers, ponds and sculptures, its shady walkways and benches provide some peaceful afternoon respite. Set within a light and airy building, the Kouvoutsakis Art Institute showcases fine art dating from the 1800’s to the present day. With an emphasis on Greek figurative work, the institute’s impressive collection consists of 1,500 paintings and sculptures. For chocoholics with only the most discerning of sweet tooth’s, a visit to Chocolaterie Kifisia is inevitable. The family-run business specializes in handcrafted gourmet confectionary, as well as gifts, wines and champagne. Goulandris Natural History Museum was first opened in the 1960’s to educate visitors about Greece’s rich habitats and wildlife. Focusing on everything from zoology and marine biology, to botany and geology, its vast collection includes specimens of insects, mammals, birds, reptiles and fossils.
