Exarhia Square is the social hub, its atmospheric streets lined with quirky bars blasting out everything from traditional rebetiko to hard rock. The new age bookstores and organic cafés offer clues to this central Athens neighborhood’s colorful past as a hotbed of intellectual radicalism. The University of Athens is one of the oldest and most prestigious educational institutions in Greece, dating back to 1837. Its magnificent central building on Patission Street in Exarhia is considered a masterpiece of neoclassical design, inspired by the architecture of the Acropolis.
