"The Plaka, Is It For You?" Plaka Tip by Paul2001
Plaka, Athens: 16 reviews and 16 photos
Favorite thing: I am torn whether to call the Plaka a tourist trap or recommend it as a place to go. This is because though I did find it interesting with its many shops, restaurants, cafes, charming old buidings and occasional ruin, I simply found it too over touristed to be enjoyable. Furthermore the restaurants and cafes here are really overpriced for this reason. Not only that but the food was really not that good in most of the restaurants
Fondest memory: If you want to eat wellI spent a total of five nights in Athens. I actually eat dinner in the neigborhood of Exarhia. There many very good restaurants and bars in this neighborhood where the food is great. On a whole it is a lot less touristy.
