Former royal estate, the National Garden, is not just a beloved oasis for Athenians. It’s encircled by many must-see city treasures, both ancient and modern.

From now on, we will describe the itinerary of our way back to “Syntagma” metro station.

We are now on the right pavement of Vas. Konstantinou Ave. On our left, we have the modern pedestrian crossing we described above, while still having Kallimarmaro on our right.

We locate the pedestrian crossing and cross Vas. Konstantinou Ave. reaching its median strip. At this point there is another traffic light with an auditory signal. We cross the other half of Vas. Konstantinou Ave and we now have Irodou Attikou Street extending on our left.

Crossing Vas. Konstantinou Ave., we turn 90° to the left, so that we now have Irodou Attikou Street vertically in front of us. There is a traffic light with auditory and tactile signals here as well, so we vertically cross.

Once across, we turn left on the pavement, leaving the metal fencing of the National Garden on our right. We continue following the fencing and bypassing a nook at some point.

We are now on Vas. Olgas Ave. in the direction of Syntagma.

At some point, the metal fencing ends and vertically in front of us there is a street that continues towards the right. This is where the Aegli cafe is located as well as Cine Aegli, both of which offer parking lots for disabled people free of charge. An accessible playground is also nearby.
