What I can see

Kifissia takes its name from the Kifissos River. The district has many impressive mansions from the 19th and early 20th centuries, an interesting market, cafes, patisseries and restaurants (mainly on Kassaveti Street), cultural sites and even antiquities. Nearby Kefalari is a quiet area also with interesting cafes, restaurants and laid back bars.

What I can't see

Kifissia and Kefalari belong to the most expensive areas of Athens and the country. Kifissia was a village of Attica, a favourite destination of the Athenians, since Roman times. With the independence of Greece, it became a resort of aristocrats due to the rich vegetation, waters and due to the proximity to the summer palace of Tatoi. In ancient times it was believed that the nymphs gathered at the source of Kefalario. Kefalari became better known during the interwar period, due to the hotels and residences of politicians and artists.
