Pláka

Interesting
Plaka is the tourist area in Athens, forming a picturesque web of narrow streets and alleys, little squares and terraces connected by flights of steps. A few small Byzantine churches alternate with old houses with round-tiled roofs and wooden balconies, some with hidden gardens. Views of the town, where the Acropolis can be seen here and there. At night Plaka comes to life. The taverns light up, inviting you to taste their Greek cuisine, washed down with retsina, and dance the sirtaki.

Our reports

Athens, much more than just an urban museum

Athens is much more than its Acropolis and traffic jams. The Greek capital is not a ‘museum city’ stuck in time; its soul is revealed in the mosaic of its quarters.
