Kolonaki: an unique and appealing Athens’ Neighborhood

An upscale neighborhood in central Athens, Greece, Kolonaki (meaning «slight column» in Greek), is named after a small column of 2m that stands in the center of Kolonaki Square that defined the area even before the area's urbanization. In the 2nd Century AD, Roman Emperor Hadrian built an underground reservoir beneath the surface of what is now Kolonaki.
