ATHENS VILLAGES KOLONAKI

KOLONAKI
Kolonaki is the chic residential neighborhood and upmarket shopping centre of Athens that hugs Lykabettus Hill. Athenian "aristocracy" resides here. You'll find expensive boutiques, pricey restaurants, and private art galleries. Every major luxury brand is here. All greek celebrities have a coffee or two in the cafés. It`s also a chic and expensive place to live.

It's a nice place to go if you like window shopping or want to find a cafe to enjoy a coffee and engage in a little people watching. The name Lykabettus literally means "hill of wolves" from the time when the hill was covered in pine forests and inhabited by wolves. Today the hill is inhabited by Athenian socialites and a cloak of cement apartment buildings. Museums abound in Kolonaki from private to highly specialized public collections. The height of Kolonaki is quite literally the top of Lykabettus Hill. The peak affords views of the entire basin that Athens sits in and is worth a visit, especially at sundown. On clear days you can see all the way to the Saronic Gulf islands of Aegina and Salamis while enjoying a drink or meal.

Few visitors, even locals, know the exact origin of its name. Kolonaki in greek means little column and is named after a small ancient column in the midle of the square. All the surrounding area is named after it.
