Plaka

Just beneath the towering Acropolis, Plaka is surrounded by antiquities, Byzantine churches and other monuments, providing a glimpse into the city’s long, rich history.

Plaka has always been one of the most important places in the city. Finds from the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates, the Roman Forum, the restored Turkish Baths and the Old University are some examples of the remarkable attractions in this ancient district of Athens, a place with more than 3,500 years of history.

It is no wonder that modern-day Plaka attracts thousands of visitors every year.
