The Plaka district is a historic area to the northeast of the Acropolis, where houses from the 19th century have been preserved.

Because it is at the foot of a tourist attraction, there are many souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes crowded together.

I visited twice on this day. When I say visited, my hotel is on the side of this area, so I feel like I went far away once and came back.


After seeing the Roman Agora, we took a walk to Syntagma Square.

It was still early in the morning at that time, so the town was very quiet.

We had lunch here. After lunch, we walked around here for a while. It was just about 2 o’clock in the afternoon, and compared to the morning, it was surprisingly crowded with people.

For me, who likes to walk around European cities, it was a fun area to just walk around.

Now we are leaving the Plaka area and heading to our next destination. Your destination is just around the corner.
