Peristeri (Greek: Περιστέρι, standing for "pigeon/dove" in Greek), older forms Peristerio and Peristerion is a suburban municipality in Athens, Greece, located about 5 km NW of the downtown area. The municipality is bordered by the Cephissus/Cephissos River, Athinon Avenue (GR-8), Chaidari in the west and Petroupoli in the northwest, with a size of around convert|10|km2|sqmi|0|abbr=on. The area includes the northern half of the Athens Industrial Area, with its main streets taking in Ethnikis Antistaseos Street and P. Tsaldari Street. The town also has a sizable Assyrian population who have immigrated from Iraq and Turkey over the past 30 years.


The Athens Bus Terminal is in the east, slightly east of Peristeri itself, along with its nearest station in Sepolia, a part of Athens. An metro station opened in 2004 in Peristeri, named Aghios Antonios due to its location near the Aghios Antonios (Saint Anthony) church. Two other stations, Peristeri (near the town hall) and Anthoupoli (near Thivon St.) are under construction, and will open in 2008.
