Palio Faliro

An urban resort with a hint of the Orient, this waterfront suburb makes a scenic escape from the city centre. Come to explore a ritzy marina, seaside park and tasty Turkish-influenced cuisine. Separated from the sea by Posidonos Avenue, Faliro was once a seaside village of fishermen, shepherds and farmers. Now its inner streets are dense with apartment blocks courtesy of the 1960s building boom. On the palm-lined promenade, play parks, an outdoor cinema and a luxe marina generate a year-round resort vibe.
