This is a maze of little white-washed houses and small churches, immediately north-east, and on the slopes, of the Parthenon. The Lonely Planet guide-book suggests a route starting with the steps up from Epimenidou. If, like us, you enjoy getting away from the crowds, and sauntering through narrow paths, exploring a hidden gem, so close to the city centre - this is for you. Stonemasons were brought from the island of Anafi to build the king's palace following Greece's independence (1830s), and these were their homes. Savour and enjoy!
