intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the
area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to
cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the
best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as

We were there a couple hours. It totally depends on how much of a history and museum buff you are? Anywhere from couple hours to all day if you have the times and interest.
