Anafiotika are like a picturesque islander village in downtown Athens. You need about half an hour to take a quick stroll but it is highly recommended that you extend and enjoy. Anafiotika means "of Anafi island" and were built by skilled builders from the Cycladic island who had migrated in Athens around 1840-1850 to help rebuild the city. The style... More

Fabulous, old neighbourhood, with “miniature” houses and streets so narrow you can’t even swing a cat around. Not that I’ve tried it. I couldn’t catch one.

It is a nice restaurant in a very nice location . The service is a bit slow and the food is average. It has a wifi and if the weather is good you can sit outsite as well.

A lovely location just under the Acropolis halfway up a hill in the Plaka. The restaurant was heaving both inside and out even though it was a cool January evening (they had outdoor heaters)and deservedly so. The food was delicious but be warned Greece seems to work on American portion sizes. Starters should be shared and main courses were very... More

While visiting the city centre on foot,you will reach at this beautiful part and will enjoy this place very much as the old buildings and narrow small roads are still making this place as one of the most visited sites in the city centre. Strongly recommended to pay a visit and seat at any of cafes&tavernas to eat or drink... More

Beautiful little narrow streets on the way to the hill of Acropolis. It starts just after Plaka. Great views and cozy place to visit just before visiting the Acropolis. A total recommend. The best way to reach this place is to walk straight the Plaka towards the Acropolis without turning to any smaller streets.

19th century quaint white-washed houses on the north-east side of the Akropolis rocky hill . Take a stroll in this area to get the feeling of Athens before cement construction took over the city.

Very romantic. The little white traditional houses make the perfect scenery for a beautiful walk, a romantic date or anything really. Make sure to get your camera!

The first time I visited the restaurant, everything was very good, meaning good food, nice view, very reasonable prices, good wine and music. It was a relief to find a nice place in the historical centre of Athens, where you are not served food garbage for tourists. I visited the restaurant 4 more times just to get disappointed every time... More

i am a local staying in the center of athens. whenever i walk around plaka i always make sure i walk around anfiotika as well. its a pretty area with charming small streets (sokakia) and has an architectural interest as well... great for travellers o all ages; difficult to move around in a wheel chair.
