Where history meets and serve tourists!

When Athens became Greece's capital in 1834, it was primarily composed of what is today known as Plaka. Since that time the city has spread enormously but Plaka has retained many of its old buildings and its character.

Situated at the base of the hill where the Acropolis is perched, Plaka is the neighborhood where every tourist should spend at least a short time. In fact, most tourists use Plaka as their base because of the large number of historic sites and museums in the vicinity.

In the "must see" tips section, I will try to inform you about things you can do to spend your time in Plaka and the greater area.
