A mere 35 km from Athens International Airport and 15 km from central Athens, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Nea Kifisia offers flexible pick-up and drop-off services to make renting a car or van in N.

What to do and see in N.Kifisia

Kifisia is a place synonymous with charm and elegance. One of Athens' oldest and most cherished satellite cities, it has served as a summer retreat for philosophers and wealthy Athenians since the reign of Roman Emperor Hadrian. Now a well-to-do suburb of Athens lined with sycamore trees and peppered with tavernas, Nea Kifisia is home to historic mansions, art galleries and designer boutiques.

A stroll around Alonia, Kifisia's oldest and most authentic area, will reveal a slew of traditional mansions called "Arhontiko." Meandering streets will reveal bakeries, tavernas, traditional spice shops and rustic cottages. You'll find a farmer's market in Agiou Tryfonos Street on Wednesday mornings, with everything from souvlaki to icons for sale. Here, you can get an idea of the local lifestyle. To the south, you will find Syggrou Forest, the perfect place to stretch your legs and enjoy some fresh air.

Renting a car in N. Kifisia allows for the perfect outing with a young family. For educational family entertainment, head over to Goulandris Natural History Museum. You'll see stuffed giraffes and zebras, fossils, crystals, plants, landscape projections, art galleries and interactive displays. The triceratops is a favorite with little ones, while the kid-friendly garden café, with its lush terrace and fishpond, tends to be the highlight for grown-ups.

For leisurely sightseeing in typical Athenian style, take a stroll down Kolokotroni Street or hire a horse-drawn carriage on Levidou Street on weekends. Take the scenic route through the heart of the commercial hub and then toward the green residential streets of Kifisia and Kefalari, enjoying 20 minutes' worth of rest and relaxation. In Kefalari Square, toss coins to make wishes at the pond, get the little ones a helium balloon or spend a few hours people-watching in the park. There's plenty to see on weekends when the large Greek Orthodox church in the square hosts lavish weddings.

On your way back to N. Kifisia, be sure to stop and smell the roses. Kifisia Grove hosts an annual flower show, but there's plenty of color and fragrance throughout the year. The famous candy store across the street has been the go-to venue for sweets and pastries for decades, both for locals and tourists. Polytechnic Heroes Square further north is another stretch of green space with a playground, lake, fountains, bridges, café and even a fighter plane.

Kifisia is also home to two open-air movie theaters Chloe and the Bomboniera. Both venues showcase evening screenings of blockbusters as well as small independent films. Weather and season permitting, you can watch your favorite film stars in a secret garden under the stars with a refreshing brew in hand. The local Cinemax will also gladly accommodate you, whatever the weather.

Finally, art enthusiasts will feel right at home in Kifisia. Kouvoutsakis Art Institute showcases an extensive and eclectic private collection of 19th and 20th-century sculptures, oils, watercolors and other media. Mamush Gallery boasts a private collection of 500 works by the likes of Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso. Galerie Lefakis is a small, private gallery featuring local artists. Finally, the Tsichritzis Foundation for the Visual Arts is a gem of a gallery in the very heart of Kifisia.

Driving in N.Kifisia

Kifisia is connected to central Athens via Kifisias Avenue, its main thoroughfare, as well as the A6 freeway and the E75 European route. It also offers easy access to Mount Pentelicus and the Marathon coastline. This makes it a busy place. All freeways and major roads have Greek and English road signs.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car would also like to advise drivers that the speed limit is 50 km/h in urban areas, 90 km/h on main roads and 110 km/h to 130 km/h on freeways unless otherwise indicated by local signs.

Anyone driving in Kifisia should bear in mind that motorists here drive on the right and pass on the left. Vehicles coming from the right usually have priority, as do those moving along a main road outside urban areas. Passing is forbidden near railroad crossings.

Drivers visiting Kifisia must plan their trips ahead, as some retailers and institutions adhere to traditional siesta hours. Some freeways have tolls, some gas pumps only accept cash, and there are no automatic gas pumps.

Parking is forbidden near stop signs, traffic lights, fire hydrants, railroad crossings, intersections and public transportation stops. Sounding the horn is only allowed in urban areas in an emergency. Also, motorists traveling to Athens should not park in the "Green Zone" but instead look for parking spaces specially designated for tourists.
