An enjoyable short walking tour of 2.5 hours. The young girl, Eva, who took us around was a fount of information and made the walk really interesting. Not surprisingly, she turned out to be a teacher who was born and bred in Athens.

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.
Starts in Monastiraki Square,at the wooden steps in the square. The square is located below the north side of the Acropolis. The start time was about 10:30 in the morning. I do not know
their tour schedule for the summer.
