The very best thing you can do in these areas is just walk and get lost and then walk some more and find so many beautiful hidden places from somewhere to stop for a drink or snack to wonderful winding alley ways with colourful homes.

Fanstastic place, best to discover while ascending to Acropolis from the east. Picturesque place with white houses and narrow passages styled on greek islands. Hypnotizing view while visiting in sunny day, really worth to see

On one of the steepest slope of the Acropolis, this little and comfy neighborhood offers a great atmosphere with its white little path. Nice to see

This little neighbourhood is a little gem in Athens, very near to the North Entrance to the Acropolis site, it is a place that seems out of place, with houses that look that they should be overlooking a small harbour with fishing boats rather than being stuck in the middle of a big city.

One of the oldest parts of Plaka with lots of eateries, narrow streets etc. Wonderful views of the Acropolis....great for a day trip but spectacular at night. A little hard to find but just ask it really is not to be missed.

We had a hard time finding this neighbourhood, but we just kept asking people and eventually we found it. It is a maze of little houses on the slope of the Acropolis. We got lost in there which is half the fun.

Please try to find this spot under the Acropolis. It is very picturesque. It's a small village hidden in a big city. We have arrived late to its streets, at dusk, so I suggest going there during the day so you can enjoy more.

High above the Plaka area,lies the Anafiotika neighbourhood. A neighbourhood that has very nice refubrished neoclasical houses .Its name was takes when people from the Greek island Anafi came from their island around 1850 to settle in Athens seeking a better life. The area has very narrow streets so building is still very difficult. You can reach the area from... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
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.
