One of the oldest and most picturesque districts of Athens, Plaka lies below the Acropolis. Here ancient Roman structures, Byzantine churches and buildings from the Ottoman occupation intermingle with beautiful neoclassical manors and picturesque taverns, creating a unique, colourful mosaic of the city’s history.

In the shadow of the Sacred Rock, the scenic Anafiotika neighbourhood adds a touch of the Aegean to the heart of Athens.

Plaka, draws multitudes of visitors to its narrow, vehicle-free streets lined with traditional taverns, bars, museums and tourist shops. A stone’s throw from the Acropolis, the New Museum, Monastiraki and central Athens, Plaka is the perfect destination.

Plaka is served by three metro stations: Monastiraki, Syntagma and Acropolis.
