We were convinced to enter the restaurant by one of it's door people; shortly after that the place got full. the greek live band began playing (consisted of three 3 guys playing guitar), we ordered food and the Entre and drinks were on the table within minutes. We sat outside, weather was nice and the atmosphere was just fantastic! My... More

A must visit area when in Athens. Located in the Plaka and vibrant, yet relaxing place. Sit in one of the many restaurants for a cold beer or a meal. You may sit as long as you like. A great place to rest from the summer heat under the shade of patio covers or even misting systems in some of... More

Adrianou Street off Monastiraki and starting at Hadrian's Wall is a vibrant place not to be missed in Athens with its cafes and restaurants along its narrow street. Both Greeks and tourists mix and enjoy strolling along. Just at the start of it , is Efxaris Restaurant and Café, I would recommend. The place is teaming at weekends. Another good... More

Very nice street full of restaurants with outdoor/sidewalk seating. Good restaurants with decent prices. Plenty of stores. Always full of pedestrians so eating here will fulfill your "people watching" needs. =)

For me Adrianou Street should be considered as the best eating area in Athens because you have a great variety of restaurants, pubs, clubs, bars etc. there... Every place offers you 'the best meal of the day' with good prices. Also local food. No need to search for more, no need to think - just go to Adrianou and choose... More

To start with Adrianou is the street that mainly connects Monastiraki with Thision. It is full fo people that walk, drink their coffee, eat a traditional meal or even get entertained by the street animateurs that tend to put up a show there. It is fun and it is enjoyable by all ages. Of course prices are a bit high... More

Lots of stores, all the regular souvenirs, plus a good deal of lovely hand made items at different locations make this worthwhile for an afternoon stroll. You'll definitely find all the knick knacks you want to take back with you and the prices are fine. We went to one store in particular at 90 Adrianou called smART store. Lots of... More

Adrianou street is the "main" street in Plaka, just bursting with life any time, day or night. It is full with eateries, most of them cheap, and souvenir shops, if you need one of those little greek statues. Take care of pickpockets ans other petty thieves here

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
