Pittaki Street

With lampshades hung between the buildings, Pittaki Street in Psirri is Instagram gold. The fairy-tale themed café Little Kook has got to be the most-photographed spot in Athens; the extravagant outdoor decoration changes with every season. The surrounding alleys of Psirri are also incredibly photogenic, with street art, interesting architecture, and traditional tavernas in abundance.
