We enjoyed our jaunt here. Perhaps the best single description on how to access this exact neighbourhood is in Rick Steves' guidebook.

We specifically looked for this area, and walked around, having read about it. I must say we were disappointed. Not much to see really.

Great neighborhood in central Athens, Plaka. Walking through the narrow streets with views of the Acropolis is the most magical thing you can ask from that city.

We popped by in our way back from visiting the Parthenon. The food was amazing and the drinks are really good. Busy but food comes quick and our waiter Costas was great!
