A neighbourhood just next to the Acropolis

If Athens is the classical history capital of the world, the historic neighbourhood of Plaka is the fashion and shopping capital of Athens. This ancient part of town is also known as the neighbourhood of the gods as it is so close to the Acropolis. Just a few metres from the Greek Parthenon and the Theatre of Dionysus, it is nestled between the neighbourhoods of Monastiraki and Anafiotika. Plaka is the oldest neighbourhood of Athens and its paved streets are home to many beautiful neoclassical buildings dating from the 19th century. We recommend losing yourself in these streets and discovering the large number of shops to be found in this historic neighbourhood. This area is home to both highly exclusive and more accessible clothes shops, in addition to a range of excellent bars and restaurants.
