"Plaka" Plaka Tip by SirRichard

Plaka, Athens: 75 reviews and 115 photos

  A view of Eolos Street
by SirRichard

Plaka is the classic touristic destination for all kinds of tourists in Athens. It is a little, quiet (well, just in the early mornings, LOL) quarter around the north slope of the Acropolis. Its narrow streets are filled with terraces, restaurants, souvenir shops... and tourists, hundreds of them.
You can get here from Monastiraki or Syntagma metro stations.
Though nice to have a walk around with the Acropolis as background, for lunch & dinner I prefer the nearby quarter of Psiri, not as spoiled (yet) as Plaka.
