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

Lovely place to walk around and see different houses, alleyways, to meet locals and find nice places to eat or snack.

When I lived in Athens I would come here for a walk. It is a beautiful area with homes, shops and taverns in structures that created modern Athens. It is like going to an old village, which it is. Shade with an escape from the craziness of Athens can be found here. On my return, I felt at home here.... More

This strange and charming neighborhood hangs on a lower face of the Acropolis hill, above Monastiraki. Its easy to miss even if you're looking for it. The mazelike streets are very narrow and twisting, more like hallways and staircases running between the tiny homes. With cats peering at you from all directions. This is a Greek island cliff side village... More

If you're visitng Athens but you don't have time to visit one of the famous greek islands then you have definitely search for tiny neighborhood of Anafiotika which lies in the northerneast side of the Acropolis hill. In 1922 workers from the island of Anafi came to Athens in order to work as constructor workers in the refurbishment of King... More

Obviously, it wasn't the easiest place to find. I'd read that in other reviews. But it is adorable when you do find it...white washed walls, blue shudders, quaintness. But give yourself a little time to wander the small streets 'til you find it.

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.
