  • Hi, do you supply transport from the airport ? Γεια σας, παρέχετε μεταφορικό μέσο από το αεροδρόμιο;

    Hi, We have drivers we suggest or can organise for you. We cannot manage payment for guests. If you would like me to organise an airport pickup, I need the flight details and number of persons. Cost is around 40 euro. Best regards Stavros

Named after the pottery workshop that quite likely operated in this location since before the classical era, with its neoclassical façade and the preserved byzantine finds in the yard, the hotel Kerameion brings together the city’s history in one space. The 19th century building, the façade of which still provides the hotel with its beautiful front, had to be torn down due to irreparable damage sustained during the quake in 1999. Only the façade could be saved. Clearing the rubble of the old basement unearthed, among other finds, parts of the ancient aqueduct, and pottery that the archaeologists, in a first estimate, dated as early as 600-800 BC. Though perhaps the most interesting discovery were the slabs of unused clay, which suggest this to have been the location of an ancient pottery workshop. Alongside the byzantine storage space preserved underneath glass in the back yard, the finds showcase the near continuous craftsmen’s presence in the neighbourhood.

Psirri has become an insider destination for visitors to Athens. A neighbourhood in transition, here the traditional craftsmen’s workshops have been joined by fashion designers, art galleries and theatres, resulting in a vivid mix of people and creativity.
