Marina Flisvos





Marina Flisvos
Apart of being a harbor for luxury yachts and boats, the Flisvos Marina is a wonderful place to hangout with friends. There are a number of awesome outdoor and indoor lounge bars and restaurants overlooking the marina with in the background a view of Kastela cliff. This is also a popular weekend destination for families with children, who visit the fun park or the playgrounds in the nearby park.

Before starting your visit to the Flisvos Marina, you may get by foot to the nearby Trocadero quay where is anchored  the Averof cruiser. This unique armored cruiser of the first half of the 20 century is now functioning as a floating museum.

Palio Faliro Park


Parko Falirou
This is a very well entertained park with green grass and trees. It houses two big playgrounds for children. A coffee shop with a smaller playground where parents can sit and follow their children while they are playing.

During summer time you can enjoy your favorite movies in the open air cinema, Cine Flisvos. There you can eat popcorn or drink a cold beer while watching the movie. The children sounds from the nearby playgrounds might interfere in the background, but it still remains a good destination for a memorable evening in a hot summer day.

In the park you can walk along the seaside to Flisvos or to the next marina called Marina Alimou. The path is followed among others by bikers and joggers.
