Everything was great! Eventhough it was packed and you need to go early to get a table it is worth it! The food was excellent and Elena that sings there on Sunday nights is lovely.

You think you are visiting a different time period and place in Anafiotika. It is a very traditional place to visit, extraordinary during the night, with all those small taverns having their lights on. Great for afternoon and evening meals or just for a drink. It can be quite crowded but it is definitely worth the visit.

This walk is a must. You feel like you are in a Cycladic island - it is no coincidence that the name Anafiotika comes from the small island of Anafi.

I am Greek but we live with my partner in Australia. It has been a while since I last came to Greece and I was not aware of this restaurant. Apparently it is pretty new. We were walking around and I noticed that it was full of young locals so we though we give it a go. I avoid touristic... More

We did not know about this in the beginning, but stumpled upon it while walking through the Plaka and old marketplace. It is quiet, very local and full of very quaint and pleasant restaurants.

We wandered through this charming hilly area on our way from the Acropolis area to the Agora while following a Rick Steves walking tour. I don't know that I would say it is truly a "destination," but worth it to see a neighborhood like this in the heart of Athens. I was happy we had the map and guide because... More

We took an early morning wander around the streets of Athens and found this little hideaway. Yes very Cycladic island style houses in a peaceful small community. You don't really want to disturb the peace for the people that live here , so just take a quiet wander and move on for a coffee in one of the nearby wonderful... More

The difference between Anafiotika and other shopping areas of the world is that, not only are the shops below the old homes of ageless structures, but also, one can find something to buy, something to drink, something to eat and something to look at. Cobblestreets with the sounds of locals conversing, souvenirs here and there and then there are the... More
