One of the popular streets of Athen's Plaka with many shopping opportunities, either for souvenirs, design pieces and local fashion. Also many restaurants specialised in local Greek cuisine. A nice evening walk.

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
