“A breath of the islands, right in the city center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Little Anafi is about as charming an area as you can find in a city the size of Athens. A wander here will turn up shops and restaurants much better than in the Plaka. Plus, you'll often be surrounded by Greeks, as opposed to other tourists.
There are a few really good restaurants in here too. Your hotel desk staff will likely be able to recommend one or two.

“Village under the Acropolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

the windey lanes and little houses on the side of a hill make you think you are in a tiny village. It is a fascinating place and is one way of walking up to the acropolis

“Picturesque and ecological with panoramic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

a perfect walk before going to the New Acropolis Museum: start at Monastiraki metro station, pass the Adrian library, light a candle in the Church of Theotokos "Grigoroussa", admire the Roman Agora with the Tower of the Winds and climb up : less then 50 houses in "Cycladic" style cling to the Acropolis wall, there is even an art museum Kanellopoulou. The tavern "Spilia" is good for a cup of coffee or more.

“The islands in the middle of Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Everyone who comes and visits the Acropolis needs to visit this wonderful area right below the sacred rock. I felt like I was in an island and the narrow streets with the white houses are a wonderful diversion from the hustle and bustle of Athens. Let yourself get lost in this area.
