Nea Ionia is an urban area and municipality in the North Sector region of Attica. It covers an area of 4.4 square meters, has a population of 67.134 inhabitants and an altitude of 130 m.

It borders north with Neo Heraklion, south with Galatsi, west with the refugee districts of New Philadelphia and New Halkidona and east with Marousi. The modern city is accessible by ISAP at Nea Ionia, Pefkakia and Perissos stations and by car via the Athens Road to Lamia and Heraklion Avenue.

The modern city was built after the Greco-Turkish War (1919-22) and the subsequent population exchange between Greece and Turkey in 1923. The new settlement originally named Nea Pisidia.

But later, due to the arrival of many refugees from other places of Ionia, the settlement finally named Nea Ionia. The refugees carried their expertise in carpet handicrafts and soon developed carpet businesses. This was the main economical source for the residents of Nea Ionia for many years.
