The area is below the Acropolis and more or less between Monastiraki and Syntagma. Many of Athens’ older buildings dating back two or so centuries, narrow and largely pedestrianised streets lined with cafes, restaurants, tavernas, gift shops (some with original gift items!) As fresh and oasis-like a feeling, especially early on a sunny morning, as you can get to a city, especially the normally noisy and buzzing Athens. It’s enjoyable to walk, discover small exhibits on the way through and small museums such as the Museum of Children’s Art The Museum of Greek Folk Art, Museum of Musical Instruments. At night it comes alive, with many socializing over an evening coffee Frappe and then eventually, numerous shared plates of food at its tavernas, and Acropolis-hillside-clinging restaurants. Though this is a tourist magnet, it contains some desirable homes and many lived and work here; a few of the oldest homes still remind of an era void of creature comforts. The area of Gazi got its name from the fact that the original Gasworks of Athens was located there. Gazi area became very popular the last 8 years to the locals, it is full of restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs and live Greek music. Gazi is easily accessible by means of the Kerameikos Metro Station – which is found directly in the main square. It is located about 1 km away from the center of the city in the south-west direction.
