Worth a visit. The street is filled with vendors selling pretty much anything Greece / Athens touristy related. I've noticed everything is negociabile Can get pretty crowded. Plenty of restaurants to choose from.

The Plaka is one giant souvenir shop, with some decent restaurants. Clearly the only customers in the Plaka were tourists. But, it still needs to be experienced, just don’t waste too much time or energy there
Just a great place to shop and people watch .

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.
