This little neighborhood on the NE slope of the Acropolis was cute but I did not find it as amazing as many others. Its a steep hike up from the Plaka, and basically consists of a bunch of unique homes with narrow pathways that have great views of Athens. The same views we had seen from the Acropolis the previous... More

A little village under the holy rock of Acropolis. A must see and must walk. There is also a small cafe up there if you can find it.

If you don't have time to go the the Cyclades islands or want to change from the atmosphere of traffic & cars from Athens go to this tiny enclave of white & blue calm & quiet. Extremely narrow streets (one of them not as large as my son's shoulders!), bougainvillea, blue shutters, very photogenic place. Very easy to find when... More

One of the most beautiful places we found in Athens, but man is it a climb to get to! Also a bit difficult to locate... but once you find it you will know. Filled with charm and a joy to stroll around, after you recover from your climb.

Nestled at the foot of the Acropolis but radically different from the touristy Plaka neighborhood of which it is nominally a part, Anafiotika offers strollers a charming interlude along narrow streets and white-washed buildings that more resembles the Greek Islands than the mainland. Not to be missed!.

For 7 euros you have a wonderful view across Athens. There is also a little church on the top to visit and the cafe gets good reviews.

I am an islander so when I am in Athens sometimes I get homesick. I might wanna go back to the sea but Piraeus doesn't really do the trick. I found it when I was lost/wondering around the citadel and I thought I was on a greek island. There are also some daft things that I don't really want to... More

Just spend some time walking around the area of Athens and you will find it very charming and quaint!!! When you think of a European city with narrow cobblestone streets lined with cafes and people you will find it here. We had lunch there and if we visit Athens again we would definitely go back.

Anafiotika is a traditional neighbourhood at the bottom of the Acropolis hill. It was built by the people from the island Anafi, when they moved to Athens and it is one of the few examples of such architecture in mainland Greece. Picturesque streets, traditional & low rise houses, colourful flowers, amazing scents, welcoming people and a view to the Acropolis... More
