TOWERS AND MANSIONS OF KIFISIA
On December the 26th at 12:00΄ SAS organize a festive stroll around the streets of Kifisia, the main reason of which is to admire the old Towers, Mansions ( Arhontika in Greek language ) and some neoclassic buildings that represent the … ‘‘ Belle époque ’’ of this wonderful suburb of Athens ! Most of these preserved ‘‘ Villas ’’ were built at the end of the … 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th ,as country houses of some rich people of the … past !
The whole walk will take us as long as 2,5 hours approximately, actually divided in two parts of the now existing town, the commercial district and the residential area ‘‘ Strofili ’’, no hiking boots required .… no poles .. no … only our desire to come !
After the stroll is over, we will lead … ourselves to the oldest tavern in Kifisia established in … 1893 that means 124 years old, named ‘‘ Katsarina ’’, 311, Kifisias Aven. for an optional meal.
Meeting point is in front of ‘‘Bueno Crepa ’’ cafe on 1, Kasaveti str. just 20 meters away from the, nobody doesn’t know …, famous ‘‘ Varsos ’’ patisserie established since 1892, where why not after the meal we could enjoy the best traditional sweets in … Athens!
At the end of the day and obviously at the begging of the … night, big surprise hears at the name ‘‘ Bronco ’’ !!
