What I can see

Kalapothaki Street has a total length of approximately 160m, 100m of which is a pedestrian street. In the remaining 60m we find some eclectic buildings on both sides of the street, with later additional floors in retreat that significantly alter the original architecture of the street. Likewise in the section of the pedestrian street, on the north side of which there are interesting examples of modern architecture that are unfortunately “lost” in the larger buildings and additions. The Kalapothaki pedestrian street is known to residents and visitors for its 5-star hotels, cafes, bars and restaurants. Food lovers can taste from seafood to burgers and choose from a variety that ranges from street food to gourmet options.

What I can't see

The ratio of the street’s width to the buildings’ original height was harmonious, as there was a greater influx of light and air. With the increase in building rates after the war – and especially during the dictatorship – higher buildings disturbed this harmony, as can be mainly seen in the pedestrian street.
