Seems like you have stepped onto one of the tiny Greek islands! Small winding walkways (no room for cars or maybe even bikes), whitewashed tiny houses, many with blue doors and windows. Cats everywhere, so watch your step!

Right in the middle of a great metropolis, Anafiotika is a small village with endearing and intimate streets and stairs. you can almost hear the sheep calling.

This is a neighborhood under the acropolis which is has the feel of an island town. You totally lose sense of place here. There are small streets with cafes and tavernas (restaurants) and quite a few tourist shops. This is a place to wander and sit down...

When in Athens, definitely visit the Anafiotika neighbourhood! It was built by the time Oto was king of Greece, and had the builders of Anafi island (Cyclades) build the palace. That's why this neighbourhood is under Acropolis and has a great and full view of the today's Parliament and the centre of Athens. Enjoy!

Walking around Anafiotika is just like travelling to a different part of Greece, with smaller old houses and cozy nice restaurants offering meals cooked in accordance with GrandMa's receipies.

I liked Anafiotika, in between Plaka and Anafiotika. I liked these alley ways of little charming island white wash houses, having just visited Santorini, it reminded me the charming island. Not many houses left as many were torn down when archaeological site was discovered underneath, and now the remaining 40 houses become a treasure to the city. The place is... More

Charming neighbourhood of Plaka district, scenic small houses, tiny yards, feels like being on a Greek island, but when you look up, you can almost touch the Acropolis hill. And somehow you think that the roaming cats are taken care of, there.
