4.7/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
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.

  • One Athens completely different. Like island, narrow streets with small yards and flower pots with colorful flowers. Skalopatakia that give you the feeling that not pooping anywhere, on their end to elevate into a small platwmataki that you have a fantastic view over Athens.

  • Really looks like a typical Greek village, white and blue, close to the Acropolis, worth the short tour 
  • Delightful district at the foot of the Acropolis, filled with beautiful views that make me think of being a small and remote island in the Mediterranean.
