Location within Athens

Neapoli means 'new city.' The name originally comes from the fact that it was a new area of Athens built beyond Praxiteles and Evrypidos streets during the decades when the city was starting to become urbanised. Eventually, the name Neapoli came to refer to only the eastern side, while the western side became known as Metaxourgeio.
The area is well known for book publishing and some of the oldest bookstores of Athens are found there.
