Anafiotika, Athens

4.7
#3 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Athens
A village in the heart of Athens, Anafiotika sits below the acropolis complex. Famous for steep streets lined with whitewashed houses, here you can enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Established in the 19th century by workers migrating from Anafi, the area was upturned and damaged during archaeological research in the 1950s. Today the compact neighborhood has less than 50 houses. As you explore, admire the giant earthenware pots filled with bougainvillea. Browse the handmade souvenirs in the narrow alleys and mingle with the locals at a cafe.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
