Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
