Enjoying your Walk at Plaka & the Historical Center of the City
For a refreshing walk in the historic center of Athens, you will need comfortable shoes and your camera! Walk to the picturesque neighborhoods of Plaka and Anafiotika for a journey into the past. The architecture is amazing and the buildings are structured in a neoclassical manner, with touches of the Cycladic islands. 
Every step you take will fascinate you, as you see the bright blue sky and the wonderful natural surroundings. Especially on a sunny day, nothing beats the elegance of the historic center of the city.
Plaka is one of the most genuine neighborhoods of Athens, with the absolute respect of the inhabitants to the folklore character and the past glory of the place. You will be able to enjoy a cup of coffee or a light meal, overlooking the marvelous buildings and the flowers blossoming in the area. Traditional taverns and cafeterias will serve local delicacies and offer the best break, before you continue with your stroll.
Besides Plaka, you may go on to Monastiraki and Theseion. At the former, you will mingle with the locals and other travelers wishing to experience original shopping at the Flea Market. At the latter, you will see the Temple of Hephaestus and the Roman Agora. Walking towards the Acropolis Museum, you will find the paved street of Dionysiou Areopagitou and admire some of the finest buildings in the city. If you want to gaze Athens from above, however, a must-see place is Lycavittos Hill. A magical world is unfolded before your eyes there, no matter if you visit the hill day or night. 
Explore Athens and its traditional neighborhoods. This is an experience that you will remember forever, keeping these beautiful pictures inside your heart and mind!
