The Plaka is a quaint area surrounding the Acropolis with lovely cobbled streets, nice little bars (my hubby and I found an amazing one with only 4 stools and what seemed like hundreds if not thousands of types of alcohol) and restaurants. The fires are pretty fabulous too - we spent a few hours just wandering around enjoying looking at all the cute little shops, restaurants and bars.

A plethora of little shops will make time run away. Stop for a drink, have an ice cream. Choose from many excellent restaurants.

We began with breakfast in the lovely Melina Merkouri Café. Honouring she affectionately known as the last of the Greek Goddesses it is beautifully atmospheric with photos of the accomplished woman, in addition to fine fare. We had many a happy hour wandering around gorgeous little streets admiring the surrounds and visiting some of its many attractions. Wonderful Frissiras Museum has an outstanding collection of art. An engaging temporary exhibition was underway, in addition to superb permanent works such as At the Bar and My Mother with the Silent Telephone. Eateries abound and we enjoyed tasty outings at Byzantino Restaurant and others. Not far from the former is the outstanding historic Monument of Lysikrates. Dating from the mid 330s BCE and built by the wealthy Athenian Lysicrates, a Choregos who financed music and dramas in the ancient theatre. Grand Byzantine churches are plentiful, we particularly liked Agios Nicholas Rangavas Church with gorgeous stone work throughout. Another fine one on Kidathineon is the Church of the Metamorphosis (Kottakis) set in peaceful sylvan grounds.

We visited in March when the 1st Covid 19 shut down was in place. We couldn't experience the atmosphere that was spoken about in the TripAdvisor reviews. It was a shame as we were really looking forward to it. We will come back when everything is open and hopefully feel the vibe of the area.
