Hotels in Plaka Athens area
Starting at the foot of the Acropolis, the old area of Plaka is a maze of narrow, cobble-stoned, medieval streets that twist through ancient sites, tourist-packed squares and lovely Byzantine courtyards. The best way to explore it is simply to get lost among its enchanting passages.
You’ll almost certainly spend time on its main thoroughfare, the tourist-shop-packed Adrianou, which is named after the Roman emperor Hadrian and winds up to the library he built in AD 132, and in leafy, café-filled square Filomousou. The most beautiful section of Plaka is Anafiotika, a cluster of Cycladic-island-style houses at the very base of the Acropolis.
In recent years, Plaka has been revitalized, becoming more than just a neighborhood of old families with tourists walking through – The Greek Culture Ministry, along with several private arts and real-estate firms, has been buying up its old houses, restoring them to their former glory and transforming them into worthy new arts venues. Some of the best of these are Frissiras Museum and the Museum of Greek Children’s Art.
