On Monday, May 8, residents and visitors of Athens will find two more pedestrianized streets in the city center, the Municipality of Athens said on Friday.
The streets Agathonos and Karoris (up to Voreou Street) have been pedestrianized as part of the municipality’s program to restore the “commercial triangle of Athens” (market place of the city center).
As of May 8 cars will no longer be able to turn left from Voreos Street to Karoris and Agathonos streets. It is reminded that vehicles are allowed to enter Athinas Street only from the streets of Mitropoleos, Karagiorgis and Sofokleous.
The municipality’s aim is to transform the “commercial triangle of Athens” in order to improve living conditions in the Greek capital that includes rules on the management of public spaces, the circulation and parking of vehicles, waste management and the display of posters and graffiti street art.
The two streets previously pedestrianized in Athens were those of Vyssis and Kairi.
The “sides” of the “commercial triangle of Athens” are the three main squares of the city: Omonia, Syntagma and Monastiraki.
