Filothei (Greek: Φιλοθέη) is a green, affluent northeastern suburb of Athens, Greece, consisting mainly of hillside villas, relatively close to the Olympic Stadium. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Filothei-Psychiko, of which it is a municipal unit.[2] The municipal unit has an area of 2.301 km2.[3]


One of the traditionally rich northern suburbs of Athens, Filothei has been historically home to important people such as politicians and businessmen; it is also home to many of Athens' foreign residents, especially those employed in diplomatic capacities.
