arbanlol 08 Jan 2011In the heart of the townPlaka is one of the most picturesque and oldest districts of Athens. It is characterized by the several monuments that carry an important history. The historic neighborhoods of Plaka are actually a symbol of authenticity in Athens, you certainly think about it as you walk around. Anafiotika is a quarter with old traditional houses and blue doors that bring a Cycladic atmosphere. This quarter was first inhabited by refugees from Anafi, a small island next to Santorini, and the people have maintained the architecure of their homeland.
Plaka is a trading spot with high tourist movement as it has several archeological places to demonstrate. Walking around, we saw Byzantine churches, the ancient market and the Tower of the Winds. Our travel guide said that we couldn't miss Plaka and indeed you go through this quarter to visit most sights in Athens.
Every little shop of Plaka satisfies the need of every customer. They sell a huge variety of things such as books, clothes and rare pieces of jewelry. Going out from Monastiraki station you will surely enjoy walking around market places, the antique shops and flea markets.
