Most travelers to Greece have never set foot in Kypseli. Many Athenians have never been there and some who have lived here have not been back in years once they moved away as the ever expanding immigrant population began to fill the area. With a population density that has been rumoured to be the highest in the world, the perception of Kypseli by many Athenians is of a neighborhood that has lost its way. I disagree. Kypseli is alive and one of the most interesting places to live in Athens. Home to artists, musicians, poets, writers, chefs, actors, film makers and travel writers, even Rick Steves called it one of the best kept secrets in Athens.
