In recent years, both in Greece and worldwide, there is a tendency to create smarter cities in order to improve the daily lives of citizens. The chapter focuses on the city of Peristeri and intends to analyze its transformation from a traditional city to a 21st century smart city. As Peristeri is the third largest municipality of Attica, the case of it is of special interest. A recording and an assessment of the transition of Peristeri to a smart city will depict the current situation, future directions, and planning and how the COVID-19 period influenced this transition. Τhe fundamental role of citizens is discussed. The results of the case study analysis indicate that Peristeri aims to be a smart city leader for the western suburbs. Although the findings highlight great potential for further development, the strategy, the methodology, the organization, the emphasis on the citizens and the city seems to be a decisive factor for the municipality of Peristeri to be a pioneer.
