    We expend a couple of days in Plaka! What a wonderful experience! We were visiting the different stores, bars, restaurants, even talking with the people in the street. Everybody is pretty friendly and very tourist oriented. Another thing, it is very safe. It's is a most to visit this area if you want to have a great time. We will come again!

    We went to this restaurant a second time for two reasons. First of all the atmosphere, service, food and drinks are great. Second, we had a table near to a fire place which made it feel nice and cozy. For all these reasons and more, highly recommended.

    Monastiraki really is tourist central and understandably so, as it is located within walking distance of almost all of the main Athen attractions. Actually a fairly attractive district, it does however suffer from ‘tourist’ prices which means you are going to pay high prices for food & drink. If you walk north just a few blocks, prices will decrease 1/3 for almost everything. Walk half a mile and then will decrease another 1/3.

    Plenty (if not an over abundance) of tourist shops all selling the same tacky items.

    Psiri is a district in the form of a pentagon (Athens is not distinguished by strict geometry). The area is bounded from the south by the main shopping street Ermou, from the east by Athena Street, from the northwest by Euripides Street. Despite its venerable age, this area of Athens is famous not for antique buildings, but for entertainment establishments. In contrast to the tourist infrastructure, this area was previously positioned as a place of rest for local residents. There are many nice bars and restaurants from the Tripadviser list. For example, the long-term leader of the list is the Cinque Lune & DeliBar wine bar, which I visited on my last visit. However, judging by the appearance of establishments with flashy signs and garish design like Peter Pan and Little Kook, mass tourism destroys the atmosphere of this area. But there is still time...

    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.

    The square is not especially pretty, but all around it are great cafes and restaurants, the focus of Athens' most upscale neighborhood. We were here everyday and went to all of the cafes. Never bored.

    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.
