"visit the Plaka. This is an..." Europe Favorite Tip by RuthLuvsPaul

Europe General: 595 reviews and 454 photos

Favorite thing: visit the Plaka. This is an older area of Athens & is filled with little cobbled streets that you think of when someone mentions Greece. It is a nice retreat from the large, grey city centre of Athens. The restaurants are fabulous & although most of the souvenir stores start to look the same after a while, you can find some great purchases!

Fondest memory: Al fresco lobster dinner in the Plaka for 12,500 drachma! It took 1&1/2 hours to eat & was delicious!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
