Pedestrians sit on a bench in downtown Athens on Saturday after a ban was imposed on traffic on Vyssis and Kairi, two side streets leading off Athinas in the Monastiraki area. The two streets are to be pedestrianized as part of a broader bid to hand over more of the capital to pedestrians. [Stelios Misinas/Eurokonissi]
