the captivating Plaka, the Neighborhood of the Gods

Plaka «Neighborhood of the Gods»


Plaka, Athens’ oldest and most picturesque neighborhood, is the area right underneath the Acropolis. Set among Syntagma sq., Monastiraki, the Ancient Agora and Thissio, the Amalia Ave. and the Makriyianni area, is also known as the «Neighborhood of the Gods».

Located under the Acropolis, its charming atmosphere is spread all around the narrow streets. A history of 6.000 years among the ancient Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman monuments, neoclassic houses and 19th centuries villas, is quite an attractive walk to take.

Typical places full of local aromas and traditional essence pave a romantic way up the Sacred Rock of Athens. So if you want to feel like traveling through time, you can’t find a more suitable place!

The major downside to staying in Plaka is that a lot of other people do as well. It is a busy and expensive district, but once again it is incredibly central.
