Kifissia is in Athens. This area offers high end shopping and outdoor cafes.

Kifissia is one of the first suburbs of Athens and has always been an elite one. You will notice many mansions and villas and expensive apartments. Now, Kifissia has become an expensive shopping district along with Kolonaki. There are also many cafes and luxurious hotels especially in an upper district of Kifissia, Kefalari.
