Agios Stefanos (Greek: Άγιος Στέφανος , meaning Saint Stephen) is a rather exclusive suburb in Attica, Greece, about 23 km north of Athens. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Dionysos, of which it is the seat and a municipal unit.[1]

Agios Stefanos is almost entirely residential, but a few shops line its main street. The suburb is situated in the northern part of the Athenian plain, between the Parnitha mountain and the mountain range to the east, and is accessed via two interchanges, with GR-1/E75 (Athens - Lamia - Thessaloniki) at the 21st and the 24th km with the GR-83 and 1.3 km south of the tolls. It is linked with a road to Anixi, and the Cephissus River lies to the west. Agios Stefanos is located SE of Thiva, S of Euboea and Oropos, W of Marathon, NE of Kifissia and NE of the Attiki Odos (number 6).

Until the 1960s and the 1970s, farmlands covered the area around Agios Stefanos, of which a remainder still exists around the locality. Forests still covers part of the area, while most of the population are urban, having in the 1960s and the 1970s once been rural. Luxury residences arrived in Agios Stefanos in the 1970s and continued into the 1990s, and development continues to this day.
