Koukaki is one of the most popular areas in Athens.
Just underneath the Acropolis lies one of the city's most creative and charming corners, nicknamed Athens ‘Little Paris’.
Koukaki was named after Koukakis, a local bed manufacturer who owned a factory near the historic Sygrou Fix building – which is today home to the National Museum of Contemporary Art. Next to the historic area of Plaka, Koukaki is the closest and most organized district neighboring the Acropolis.
It continues to preserve the glory of its past thanks to the well-preserved and renovated neoclassical homes that represent the Athenian Modernism movement which thrived in the interwar period.
