It is a picture of Athens back in the 50's or even prior to that! You can reach Plaka from the metro of Monastiraki,Thiseio or Metro of Acropolis. It depends on how much you would like to walk. Narrow streets, with no traffic at all, small buildings and a lot of internal gardens are the main characteristics of Plaka. A place ideal for lovers of Romance and The old good days of Athens! Ydria,Amaltheia and Melina are probably the 3 best coffee spots with excellent service. Restaurants are good as well,give them a try
