Paleon Faliron

Marina FlisvouΒattleship AverofBoats in the little port of Flisvos

Also known as Phaleron, this suburb 10 kilometres south-west of Athens served as the city’s main harbour until the Persian Wars. Since the 19th century, it has been a recreational destination and seaside resort. Today, the district is divided into two sections: Paleon, the older, and Faliron, the newer.

Faliron faces the sea and features one of the most beautiful coastal promenades in the capital. Paleon Faliron is primarily a residential area, but also has a host of excellent restaurants, cafés and hotels.

The Trocadero near the municipal marina features many important attractions and a large entertainment venue. A walk on the seaside promenade offers picture-postcard views of the sunsets on the Argo-Saronic Gulf.

During the 2004 Olympics, Faliron was an official Olympic site and hosted many events. Today it is home to a number of major sports centres, including the SEF and Karaiskakis Stadium.
