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.

  • At the foot of the Acropolis, lies the anafiotika to reminiscent of another Athens, now is gone for good. The view is unique. If you visit the neighborhood pretty morning before 11 may avoid hordes of tourists.

  • Not to be missed, a typical neighborhood. Small pedestrian and very narrow streets, lined with bougainvillea and beautiful floral arrangements. Very nice view. This isn't a commercial place.

  • Anafiotika is a super nice, cosy area with lots of white and colored cottages. You walk through the narrow alleys and every time it's a surprise what you're up against. During my visit in February, it was very very quiet.
