Places to visit:

We would recommend that you visit Acropolis, the National Gardens, the Museum of Cycladic Art etc. Find lots of useful information and beatiful spots to visit here.

We strongly advise you to lose yourself in Plaka’s streets, explore hidden small parks and beautiful views of the ancient ruins. Take your time to walk in Aeropagitou street that leads to Herodion Theatre. Don’t miss the chance to walk through the Monastiraki Market and then stroll around Thisio. And while doing all that, don’t forget to take a take-away freddo coffee like a real Greek. 🙂

Traditional desserts, food and coffee places:

  • Books&Beans: That is a place for whoever loves books. Books&Beans is the most cute bookstore coffee place where you can just go and chill reading a book. They have a very inspiring place with chairs and sofas and a cute garden. Tip: Try the homemade ice teas!
  • Krinos (since 1953): One of the most traditional places where you can eat the famous sweet loukoumades with honey or melted chocolate (or both). It is crowded every day but it is a must for the sweet lovers.
  • Yiasemi: Yiasemi (=jasmin) is a cafe shop in the beautiful streets of Plaka where you can just relax and drink traditional lemonade and eat the delicious homemade pies and desserts.
  • Kandavlos: A little further, in the area of Thisio, in Keramikos is located the best souvlaki of Athens! Try the wrap with gyros and the feta with honey and you will definitely not regret it!
  • Kolokotroni Str.: If you want a night walk in Athens there are a lot of beautiful bars in this street. Feel free to check even the tiniest streets for hidden bars. 🙂
