Neighbourhood

The historic centre of Athens is made up of a rough triangle formed by Akadimias, Mitropoleos and Athinas streets. Due to the influx of more than a million refugees from Asia Minor in the early 20th century, the centre is a mix of different cultures. The streets around the market form an old retail centre with streets specialising in a specific trade such as fabric or jewellery. Walking distance from his home on Lykavittos hill, this is where chef Vasilis Kallidis shops for both his restaurant and the lively dinner parties he hosts from his home.
