“What a place....!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Just before we arrive in Athens we were at Paros.... When we visited Athens we decided to have a walk in Plaka area which is famous... as we were walking we were found in a place that it was just like it was in Paros...!!!!!! It was something unexpectable and when we asked how is this place called they told us that is called Anafiotika. Its name has been taken from the island Anafi that is near Paros as they said to us and thats why it looks so same!!! Believe me... you must visit it... you don't find every day an island in the middle of a city!!!

“An air of islands in the center of Athens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

You can walk in the area and you will feel like being in the islands with the small streets, houses being built like in the old ages and everything totally different than the big busy and overcrowded big cities.

“Like an island!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

nice spot at the beginning of Acropolis rock, with houses built in the style of Anafi, an Aegean sea island. Quiet, with friendly people, lots of cats, and many nice spots for photos.

“An Aegean Island in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Anafiotika like a Greek Island in the city of Athens. This neighborhood is very close to Plaka and slope down of Acropolis.

Anafiotika is so nice place for photography with its little and pretty houses, narrow streets and cafes with Bougainvilleas, begonias and other flowers... When you walk around on the streets of Anafiotika you can easily assume that you are in a Turkish seaside town or an Aegean Island.

So cute...

Great service, in the heart of the Plaka. Wonderful complimentary desert and gorgeous resident cat. Food is good value for money.
