Anchesmou street, as referred to in maps dated back in 1880, was the road connecting Stadiou street to Lycabettus. Back then, the road was not bestowed of the recognition and the commercial value it has today. It took decades for Anchesmou street to transition from an ordinary street with residential properties to one of the most significant streets in Athens, the road known today as Voukourestiou Street.
Koukaki is located on the southeastern side of the Filopappou Hill in Athens, a district with a strong historical, archeological and architectural element, classifying it as the most popular tourist destination in Athens. It is a densely populated area since the 1960’s, due to its location, exactly below the Acropolis and very close to the historical center of Athens. As a residential area located in the center of Athens it has also evolved as a center of entertainment during recent years.
