The New Athens is an area located in the 9th arrondissement around the "Rue de la Tour des Dames" near the tiny and gorgeous Place Saint Georges. The name was given by a newspaper in 1823 because of the "greek" mania at that time but honestly there is not much Greek into this area. It has been a place where a lot of famous actresses of that period used to live in beautiful mansions like that one. I will show more of the area these next days. If you're in Paris it's a very nice walk to do in a calm and beautiful area not much known by tourists but really great to wander around.
