Following Rick Steve's city walk, we climbed the area of Anaflotika, a quaint area of small homes lining the hillside. From here you get great views of the Parthenon. You are able to climb Mars Hill/Aeropagus/Ares Hill, where St Paul preached. Then, if you wish, continue your journey to the Acropolis.

Very interesting to stroll round the historic old streets. Lots of lovely coffee and cake shops as well eating places. Still warm enough to enjoy walking round seeing all the old shops.

A tiny neighbourhood in the Plaka district on the northeast slope of the Acropolis, Anafiotika is must visit. A flurry of small winding streets, alleyways and steps littered with small restaurants, cafes and shops. It seems every corner you turn, you find something new. Creative and colourful graffiti/street art (if that's your thing) amongst beautiful architecture. It's worth noting, there're... More

You must take a walk in this area when in Athens. It is on the slope of the hill of the Acropolis and has a small-village feel: colourful or white houses, bougainvillea spilling over the walls, small cafés perched on the stairways. You are far from the hustle and bustle only minutes away by foot. Pick a café, sit and... More

Anafi is one of the Cyclades island. Centuries ago people from this island moved to Athens and built a miniature of their village under the Acropolis rock. So if you want to have a taste of Anafi, take a walk to Anafiotika. Wander through the narrow streets and chat with the locals. We do it often in the afternoon.

This little section of the Plaka is primarily residential with some offices. The winding narrow streets filled with bougainvillea and other flowers does not invite the crowds of tourists. It's great for snapping pictures of the houses and the cats.
