Our walking tour of Athens took us through this beautiful little neighborhood that's packed with color, history, & locals. The views are gorgeous too! We stopped at this local church and lit a candle too... It's a little bit of a steep walk, so I wouldn't suggest this route for an elderly person who is out-of-shape, but if you take... More

Anafi is a small neighborhood of Athens, offering a scenic view of the city due to its location on the acropolis hill. Its houses are lovely and a little walk around it makes for a nice afternoon.

Anafiotika is an amazing neigborhood near the Acropolis which creates impression that you are in the small village on the seaside

This is a step back in time, pace of life appears slow, almost like a small village within Athens. Take a good couple of hours to walk about and pick up a coffee or even a lunch in one of the cafes/restaurants nearby.Do not forget your camera.

I know other reviewers have said the same, but this is a truly astonishing district - a slice of island paradise transplanted into central Athens. Wander through the narrow streets on the way up to the Acropolis and you'll feel a million miles away from the busy metropolis below.

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...
