  • If you are into archeology and history you may find this square more interesting that I found it. It is a regular touristy square, a lot of little shops selling souvenirs, cafes, snack shops etc. Ther...  more »
  • Descending from Omonia, the City Hall square to remind us that this was once the center of Athens. Surrounded by the most ugly they popular, remains an intervention to try to redevelop the area, which has left us indifferent.

  • Open air antiquities
  • The central part of the archaeological site crosses section a basic road that ran from the gates of ancient wall (National Bank) and lead to the northern municipalities of Attica. This is the famous Acharniki Street.

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.
