    Busy place, plenty bars, eateries and stalls that sell various products like jewellery, clothes and holiday souvenirs.
    You would need a day or more to see it all but a place that is work a visit.

    For us it was the most iconic area of Athens to walk through. You can find many little shops and amazing restaurants, and of course hundreds of cats! If you're in Athens, you have to spend some time in this area

    Absolutely manic area with people hustling and bustling in every direction. My wife and I visited as part of the Piraeus and Athens Hop On Hop Off service and really enjoyed the experience.

    This is a good neighborhood for those who like to explore outside the typical tourist areas. There are no big visitor sites here, just a pleasant neighborhood where people live their lives. You can walk here from the Plaka, so it is central. Lots of good restaurants and cafes. A taste of real life.

    This is what used to be an almost derelict industrial area but over the last few years has developed into a very pleasant area for an evening. Lots of coffee shops, bars, eateries and with a metro station on your doorstep.
    If you’re feeling brave then you can take a meal on the elevated restaurant that hoists you many metres above technopolis.

    This is a long street mostly along the sea shore. Lots of restaurants bars and cafes along the road.There are areas you can stop the car and enjoy the beach.
