Monastiraki & Plaka
Plaka and Monastiraki, the most famous areas of Athens, thrill with their picturesque corners while giving history lessons. The alleys of Plaka that reach the rock of the Acropolis, the island's neighbourhood of Anafiotika, flowering bougainvillaeas, taverns and tourist shops create the ultimate setting for endless strolls.
And Monastiraki is perfect for strolling through countless small shops and retailers' benches. The traffic peaks every Sunday when the big outdoor market set up here.
