Trendy and colorful off the beaten path. We stumbled upon this gem of an area. It just felt right. It is a must find. Take some time, have a drink and shop. Enjoy the colors.

A must visit. Great restaurants and bars. Much less touristy than Plaka. Recommend a wander through the antique stores followed by a cold beer in one of the many great little bars hidden down a flowery lane.

This was once a bit of a run-down part of town but is now an up and coming area with funky bars and quirky restaurants away from the more touristy hotspots. It has a more bohemian feel to it with narrow streets and cool shops.

What a gem of a district, so much character, fabulous restaurants, funky shops and lovely people. We stayed in an Air BnB in Atica, by Monastiraki, nearby to everything you could desire, great transport links, you can walk anywhere and everywhere.

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a

Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
