Although Psyri is a safe neighborhood, I would not recommend it for a family stay or walk alone at night.

Additional Information

Visiting Psiri is less about visiting museums and historical sites and more about experiencing the authentic atmosphere of a working Athens neighborhood. In the daytime, when Psiri is quiet, you can stroll around, see the street art, and browse the artisan shops. As the nights draw in, Athenians gather in the bars and restaurants to catch up with friends, eat and drink, and listen to music.
