Welcome to the old city of Athens
Everybody knows Athens as the birthplace of democracy, and Plaka as a tourist trap! Well, there are some points in both sentences, but we are here to discover the truth!
So, dear reader, welcome to Plaka and its famous streets, near Monastiraki and Psirri. Here you can find useful information about not only how to spend your time in Athens, but how to make your time as most useful it could ever be in a trip for you!
The borders of Plaka
Plaka is like an island, starting from Monastiraki Metro, including Ancient Agora and Adrianou at the south, going to Anafiotika up in the Acropolis rock, and ends at Kydathineon (and Nikis) streets. In these borders you can find Roman monuments, neoclassical buildings, orthodox and medieval remains, destroyed buildings, whatever you may imagine…
In Plaka you can feel romantic, young, cosmopolitan, but there is everywhere coffee and food! It is like an island inside the modern city of Athens.
