The historic district of Mets lies to the east of the Acropolis, opposite the Zappeion Gardens, just south of the Panathenaic Stadium where the first modern Olympics were held in 1896. Unique thanks to its many delightful old Athenian houses dating from the 19th century, Mets is renowned for its quiet pedestrian streets and the many gardens and parks surrounding it. Right in the heart of Athens, this quiet and extremely safe residential district is home to many Greek artists, actors and writers.
Mets is a taste of old Athens, where streets are shaded by flowering trees, lined with neoclassical houses with tiled roofs and charming courtyards, and filled with the scent of jasmine and bougainvillea. It's one of the most beautiful neighborhoods to explore in the city, with excellent dining and nightlife options, from trendy bars with stunning views to the Acropolis to one of Europe’s finest jazz clubs.
