    Mezedes, Athens
    Great food in a happening street in Plaka, Athens. We tried authentic Greek food, Dolmades, Mezze platter. We were given a complimentary sweet. This is very common in Greece to offer their speciality as a complimentary offering.

There are plenty to restaurants and cafes to choose from including cheap eats to fine dining. The area is busy with lots of people moving about. It is vibrant and fun to visit.

    Place to be at Night time
    Best Neighborhood in Athens for tourists to walk around and explore. Lots of Restaurants/Cafes, Bars and shops to enjoy, streets are fairly narrow and tourist friendly with many older world heritage style buildings in the area. I found area best at nighttime as the atmosphere is more casual and relaxed with people looking for restaurants or shopping.

    Platka Athens
    Amazing place to visit, very very busy and crowded with people and cabs and scooters. Typical shopping and restaurants, we particularly enjoyed the Pyra restaurant courtyard. Close proximity to the Acropolis and archeological museum.

    A district full of history and romance
    I stayed in an apartment in the Plaka district that had a beautiful view of the Parthenon, restaurants, and shopping all around. Everything that I wanted to see on my trip was within easy walking distance. The streets were full of fellow travelers. This district is a tad bit more expensive than other areas, especially if you are looking for souvenirs. It is a lovely district full of history and romance. 10/10 recommend.

    A fun afternoon in a magical place.
    The Place is an experience. There is street after street of small shops that have anything a tourist may want or need. They have all manner of souvenirs for every age group. Best of all they have dozens of restaurants (mostly Greek) that are serving great food and snacks. It goes on and on for dozens of blocks and the streets are walker friendly although there is an occasional car that thinks it needs to be there. Prices are very reasonable to our surprise and delight. We did not experience any price gouging by any shop and we brought stuff in quite a few. The shop keepers were friendly even if you didn't spend any money in their shop which was a pleasant surprise unlike a lot of tourist places. Best of all you can see the Parthenon from everywhere in the Plaka which enhances the experience. Do it, you'll love being there.

    Nice neighbourhood with shops and restaurants.
    Normally I am not that fond of overly touristic sites and shopping, but this neighbourhood is very nice. The Odos Adrianou is a long street full of shops with souvenirs, clothing and local products, alternating with terraces and nice restaurants. The side streets are green with vines and offer more upgrade food. The street starts across from Hadrian's Gate, continues along Hadrian's Library and the Roman Agora and ends above the Greek Agora, with even more terraces. The street here is like a balcony over the agora and a great place to sit and rest. The vibe in Plaka is very nice and it does not feel unsafe.

    The ancient sights everywhere & the seaside are worth it
    The ancient monuments are amazing. The energy at the Acropolis hill and Plato's Academy Park are amazing. I also enjoyed the my walk by the seaside. That said, Athens is way too big, it's overstimulating for a solo traveler like me, the pace is at times too fast and it's too busy and crowded. The metro was crowded at all times of the day! Certainly better with a group. Not many capitals in Europe have ancient monuments, mountains and sandy beaches with palms all in the same place.

  • Acropolis Hotels
    This ancient citadel, built in the fifth century B.C., towers over the city and is home to some of the most impressive ancient ruins, buildings, and artifacts. The most famous temple, the Parthenon, was dedicated to the goddess Athena and is considered the peak of Greek art. You can avoid long lines by joining a walking tour of the site. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring sunscreen, as the walk up the hill can be steep and exposed to the sun. For the best experience, visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the heat and for fewer crowds. – Tripadvisor

Tickets are required to enter the stadium, which includes a free audio guide. – Tripadvisor
