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.

  • Anafiotika is an "island" inside Athens that looks like a village in a real Greek island (Anafi). It requires walking up and down in narrow alleys and stairs, but it is worth the effort.  more »
  • Extremely small area. While once quaint, much of the residential part is run down now. If you are in the area and into an interesting photo of homes then it would be worth it. We walked right past it ...  more »
  • I discovered it 20 years ago, I walked all the area from noon to night... Apla... Stay in what you see and travel... Go to those people who have provided their soul, I am sure and for Anafi that her people are proud of their ancestors!
