Attractions near the Plaka Hotel
Wander through the fantastical
The pearl of the historic Plaka district, the charming tiny neighbourhood of Anafiotika is a vision of authentic Athenian history. Comprised of 45 quaint whitewashed houses sitting on steep cobblestone streets, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve been transported onto a movie set as you stroll through the pretty scenery.
Sitting in the shadow of the Acropolis, Anafiotika is an idyllic Athens sight not to be missed. Grab an ouzo or a kebab at one of the many eateries in the area, which are particularly magical at night when lit up under the enchanting illuminated Acropolis.
Just a 10-minute drive to the east side of the city lets you discover the delightful Byzantine architecture of this Eastern Orthodox monastery located on the north slope of Mount Hymettus. Steeped in history, the monastery was built in the 11th Century on a site formerly dedicated to Aphrodite, where both an ancient Greek temple and a Roman church once stood. Today the columns from the ancient temple hold up the dome of the monastery’s church.
Immerse yourself in the rich history of the monastery as you wander around and marvel at the charming architecture and the wonderful frescoes within the church. The surrounding scenery is also beautiful, providing the perfect place to escape the hustle of the city and enjoy peaceful surroundings and fresh mountain air.
