RE: Athens Between 24th Dec. And 1st Jan?

Macc you can also try Psyri which is opposite monastiraki and plaka. This is the main place that the Athenians get together during winter. You will find small bars, tavernas, restaurants, clubs, caffés in a very very warm atmosphere with nice people and interesting architecture.
Cheers!
