The unification of Athens’ archaeological sites. Dionyssiou Areopagitou and Apostolou Pavlou streets turned into pedestrian precincts

The general project tor the Unification of Athens’ Archaeological Sites is a very ambitious plan, which aims at the creation of a network of major cultural landmarks, such as the principal monuments and archaeological sites of the city, connected to one another with a sequence of open spaces, common green, service facilities and areas designated for cultural activities and recreation. The area under consideration refers mainly to Dionyssiou Areopagitou and Apostolou Pavlou streets being made pedestrian passages, two axis forming the backbone of the Archaeological Park. The walkway links most of the important monuments of Athens (Olympeion, Acropolis, Filopappos, Ancient Agora, Keramikos). This site under suitable cirmcumstances and the appropriate management may become the most interesting recreation center of Europe, offering a historical walk through the ages.
