Attractions near the Arethusa Hotel
Athens' oldest neighbourhood
The much-loved and oldest part of the city, Plaka district sits in the shadow of the Acropolis like an enchanting historic village within a bustling city. The mostly pedestrianised streets of Plaka are lined with authentic Greek restaurants, street cafes, bustling souvenir shops, and several galleries and museums.
Wander along the stone-lined streets of Plaka and enjoy the charming Mediterranean-style architecture of the Old Town, which is considered by many as the most attractive neighbourhood in Athens. The district is often crowded with holidaymakers and locals browsing jewellery shops and enjoying an ouzo or two in the sunshine.
The soaring peak of Mount Lycabettus towers above the city of Athens at 277 metres above sea level, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the area. Hop on the Lycabettus funicular railway and journey high into the sky, or if you’re feeling fit, a hike to the top is thoroughly rewarding.
With camera in hand you can capture views of Athens, across the Attica Basin and the Aegean Sea. The peak of Mount Lycabettus has an outdoor theatre, which has hosted many famous entertainers through the years. Visit the pretty white-stuccoed chapel of Saint George, and grab a cup of tea at the little cafe to sip on while admiring the view.
