"It was very surprising to see a central district in Athens so contrasted with the surroundings of the Acropolis. The streets are narrow. Some of them are dressed. There is little vegetation. I did not feel in a historical center. " Caroline Leininger

"As we walked along, the city became greener. I took this photo because the two trees are very close to the front of the building."

The market place is full of color: fruits and vegetables, spices. The discussions give rhythm to the street and if you look up, you will see more street art.

In the middle of a shopping street and the discussions of the passers-by, a trumpet player.
