A Walk on Areopagitou Street
Most of the buildings on one side of the road facing south were constructed in the late 19th century and the early 20th century in the neoclassical or modernist style, reflecting the aristocratic style of the street.
Dionyssiou Areopagitou pedestrian street begins at the intersection with Amalias Avenue, across from the site of the Temple of Olympian Zeus, where the marble bust of Melina Merkouri can be seen, and extends, after passing the entrance to the Acropolis Museum, to the entrance of the Herodeon, the access paths towards the Acropolis and, finally, the intersection with Apostolou Pavlou pedestrian street, the Pikionis marble-paved pedestrian walk towards the Philopappos Monument, the church of Agios Demetrios Loumbardiaris or Koili Odos, and to the sharp left, towards Hatzichristou Street.
You may want to follow our walk around the Acropolis, through a series of photographs I have taken over the last few months, often again and again, since this is the neighborhood I was born in, and decades later moved back to... The Athens Key would like to extend a warm welcome to AthensWas Hotel on 5, Dionyssiou Areopagitou Street, managed by Anemi Hotels.
