    Run down area full of restaurants, shops, crumbling buildings and hidden ruins. Great place to find both amazing and horrible restaurants with easy access to the Acropolis and Agora.

    I think we were just on the outskirts of the Plaka and didn't go exploring very much of it, there are some interesting shops and restaurants in this area of Athens.

    This is where every tourist ends up.
    Plaka is what foreigners think of when they remember Greece.
    It is full of restaurants and cafes.Has museums and loads of restaurants.
    I would encourage you to maybe look at restaurants on the fringe of Plaka.
    You will find that the food is better and less expensive.
    A "must see" is the neighborhood of Anafiotika.
    Nicknamed "The Island of Athens" it is located under the Acropolis and over Plaka.
    You will need a map and you'll have to ask for directions several times to find it.
    When you do encounter this charming neighborhood, you will forget that you are in a city of 4,000,000.

    I liked the Plaka area more than downtown, from what little I've seen of both. It's full of shops and restaurants, and the Acropolis and Acropolis museum are nearby. It's a great place to spend an afternoon after visiting nearby historic attractions.

    A traditional, colorful and picturesque just a few minutes away from the city center. A beautiful neighborhood which lets you forget that you are in Athens and feels like you are in a Greek Island or something.

    Pay it a visit and enjoy a coffee or your lunch in the packed narrow streets.

    If you only have a few days in Athens, I would recommend staying in the Plaka area of Athens. It's close to all the major sites, shopping and restaurants. It is more expensive than other areas for accommodation but we felt very safe and we could walk everywhere. And because it's so close to the train line, you can walk to it do take the train to the airport or the port.
