Walk slowly in the little paths that resemble to the ones in the Cyclades islands, smell the flowers in the yards and the balconies, wonder around Plaka and you will capture the feeling of the old Athenian neighbourhood...splendid feeling

Lovely village charm in the heart of the city. Lots of photo worthy places to see as you stroll through. Cats galore, lounging here, there, and everywhere. At points it can be somewhat steep, so you may want to avoid coming here during the heat of the day. Go early or late for some great views of the city!

Anafiotika is truly a place apart -- a hillside village straight from the Cyclades with white-washed buildings and sea-blue doors, with cats prowling cobblestone streets awash with colorful flowers. It's above -- and a respire from -- the bustling Plaka district. Head uphill and watch for little signs. It might be a bit tough to find the first time, but... More

Probably one of the best promenades in Athens.Walking in this neighborhood, just below Acropolis, makes you feel like being in an island. Small houses, narrow paths, and plants constist of an idillyc landscape.

Anafiotika is the most beautiful part of plaka ! It is full of small white houses and flowers in their yards. You feel like walking in a Greek island or in Athens back in 1950s. It's non touristic and you can have walk and take dozens of photos . Really close to acropolis museum

If you didn't know you are in Athens you would think you are on a Greek island. Small colorful houses with small, sweet romantic restaurants. Take a walk and look around it really worth it.

We walked through here, found some great wall arts and then walked down through Restaurant Steps. That was the best!!! Make sure you find that street/stairs that cuts right through there and take it the eclectic nature of the restaurants and people along the stairs. It was delightful.

We came here twice for local food and beers at the little staircase café. Excellent foods, good services, and friendly café owners. We also strolled down the famous stone walk streets and visited its neighboring. Will visit again to put more footprints around this nostalgic place :)

Located a stone's throw from both the Plaka and Acropolis neighbourhoods, Anafiotika has a very Greek island feel to it. We visited twice during a week's visit to Athens and both times the place was so quiet and peaceful. You feel as though you are a million miles away from the bustling capital city. There is a lovely restaurant en... More

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.
