Athina, Grecja

One of the treasures of Athens, located in the shadow of the Acropolis, the famous Plaka is like a village within the city, an island for those who don't have the time to visit the Greek Islands.
Plaka is the oldest section of Athens. Most of the streets have been closed to automobile traffic, though you should still keep a watchful eye for a speeding motorcycle or delivery truck. It is an area of restaurants, Jewelry stores tourist shops, and cafes - restaurants. Though it is quite commercialized it is still a neighbourhood and arguably the nicest neighborhood in central Athens. Most of the restaurants are typical tourist places where the quality of food is excellent with traditional mediterranean menus and tastes! If you wander around the Plaka you will find lots of different types of shops and even the regular tourist shops have amazing postcards that you can send home and make all your friends jealous. Especially the copies of old taverna and cafe menus and signs which seem to be pretty popular these days, are worth your attention. There are lots of jewelry stores. Most of them buy from factories and have the same stuff for about the same price. But there are a couple that are artist-owned which have hand-made original pieces and also copies of ancient museum pieces.
There are a few galleries and there are several museums in the Plaka of special note the Children's Museum, the Music Museum, the Greek Folk Art Museum and the History Museum and many more that you should visit!
The Plaka is under the Acropolis and stretches almost to Syntagma. There are two main pedestrian streets which intersect at what is generally considered the center of the Plaka: Kydathineon and Adrianou. Kydathineon begins at Nikis st, which is one block down from Constitution (or Syntagma) Square. If you have your back to the square walk down the large pedestrian shopping street of Ermou and take your first left which is Nikis or your second which is Voulis. Walk up Nikis till you come to a small pedestrian street (Kydathineon) and take a right. If you walk up Voulis it dead-ends at Kydathineon.
Adrianou begins in the Monastiraki flea market but disappears in the Roman Agora at the archaeological site of Hadrian's Library, before reappearing behind the wall of the ibrary and Plaka Square. If you are coming from Omonia Square or the Attalos or Cecil Hotels, walk up Athinas street towards Monastiraki. When you get to the square, take a left on Metropolis Street or on tiny Pandrossou street beyond. Take a right on Aeolis and when you come to a small square crowded with tables and the giant ancient Roman remains of the wall of Hadrian's Library take a left on Adrianou and you are in the Plaka. Adrianou and Kydatheneon connect about a quarter of a mile up. Once you know these two streets you can wander around and always find your way back.
The Plaka is full of street musicians, flower sellers, photographers and people who sell beads or will write your name on a grain of rice. Sellers of all kinds are usually placed around Plaka up to Thissio.
The Cine Paris, the best outdoor movie theater in Athens. Of course you haven't come to Greece to go to the movies but if you are not ready for a wild night out and just want to sit back and be entertained, you are in for a treat. Almost all the movies are in English with Greek subtitles and when you go inside you will discover that the theater is on the roof with a view of the Acropolis. Some nights you can see the colors change during the sound and light show. There is a bar and you can have a brandy and watch your favorite stars in the shadow of the Parthenon. This is also one of the best places to buy totally unique gifts because out front they sell the Greek versions of movie posters. You can find anything from the most popular contemporary films to posters from the sixties. Even if you don't buy you can spend an hour browsing through them all and in the end you will probably find something you have to have.
Anafiotika is the cluster of small houses built on the slopes of the Acropolis above the Plaka. It's like being on a Greek Island. It's named Anafiotika because the original inhabitants were stone masons who came from the island of Anafi to build Athens in the mid 19th century. Just continue up the steps between Kouklis and the Byzantine church of St Nicholas next to it. You can wander around the small streets and if you continue to your right (facing the acropolis) you can walk along the road that overlooks the city and leads to the entrance for Greece's most famous archaeological site and historic landmark, the Acropolis. Anafiotika is as close as you can get to being on a Greek island in the middle of a big city. If you want to know what it is like to wander around the back streets of Mykonos just come here. The neighborhood is all residential and sadly some of the houses are unoccupied and falling down.
If you come to Anafiotikia and walk to the eastern edge of the Acropolis you will get a nice view of the city. If you turn around and continue walking on the road above the Plaka and go past the Old University of Athens, now a museum, and then past the entrance of the Acropolis and take a right when you get to the new pedestrian street Apostolou Pavlou street you will end up in Thission or you can continue on and take a right on Ermou and you are back in Monastiraki.
The Plaka is loaded with archaeological sites both large and small. The famous Tower of the Winds is just a block up from Adrianou on Aeolou street and it is a part of the ancient Roman Agora. It was believed by later generations to be a place of great magic and to be the grave of Phillip of Macedon but it was actually a meteorological station from the first century built by the Syrian Astronomer Andronikos Kyrrhestes. It had a hydrolic clock fueled from a reservoir on the south side and inside was a mechanical device that represented the sun, the moon and the five known planets. The frieze which represents the winds and their personalities is the most interesting part of the building and deserves a closer look. Just across the road is the Museum of Popular Music, one of the best museums in Athens, and the Platanos Taverna, a famous old restaurant in a small square away from the main shopping area of the Plaka.
On the Makrianni side of the Plaka is the Monument to Lysikratous built to commemorate a series of plays. It is the last remaining of many which lined what is now Tripodon street. The Jesuits had a house next to it which in 1658 was bought by the Capuchins who then bought the monument and used it as a chapel.
The Capuchan Monastery was the closest thing Athens had to a hotel. Chateaubriand stayed there as did Lord Byron, where he wrote part of Childe Harold. Amazingly, Lord Elgin wanted to take the monument apart and reassemble it in England and was only stopped because it belonged to the Capuchans and for that reason the Turkish Viavode (Governor) could not give his permission.
The Plaka is like a small island in the middle of the city and it was not very long ago that the Plaka was the city of Athens. If you have time to kill get off the beaten paths and walk through the back streets. Admire the architecture of buildings that have stood for hundreds of years or climb the hill and see buildings that have lasted for thousands of years!
One of the treasures of Athens, located in the shadow of the Acropolis, the famous Plaka is like a village within the city, an island for those who don't have the time to visit the Greek Islands.
