Athens – Plaka

A must-do in Athens is walking around in Plaka. This is the neighbourhood right under the Acropolis. The district Plaka reaches from the Northside to the Westside of the Acropolis. Make sure you will have your walking shoes with you.

The main part of Plaka is a little bit touristic, but if you dive into the streets and go up the hill you will find lots of small restaurants and bars. The walls are full of nice murals and around every corner, there is a new view over the city of Athens. 

It is the perfect place to end your day after an intense walk on the Acropolis site is to wine down. For example at the Klepsydra restaurant with sangria and beer with some local snacks.

Sit down at the tables on the colourful stairs right underneath the lighted Acropolis. When the night falls, the cats will come from their roofs and hiding places to have a bite to eat which the locals provide them. The rooftop bars will become visible and will give you an amazing view over the city. Just give yourself a minute to take it all in and relax.

Lots of love from Angelique and Carlo
