We really enjoyed the quaint historic streets and buildings of this ancient area. There are many nice hotels, shops and restaurants here to visit.

Full of tourist tat shops, which one would expect, but it's still a pleasant place to wander, with some lovely squares and alleys. Some decent restaurants, too. Great if you want a key ring or T shirt declaring 'This is Sparta'... which it isn't!

Nice place to shop for Souvenirs, Tshirts, Hats etc. Many road side restaurants. We had lunch at one place and loved Plaka so much because of the vibrancy that we decided to go once again at night for dinner and watch the world cup football....More

Worth a visit. The street is filled with vendors selling pretty much anything Greece / Athens touristy related. I've noticed everything is negociabile Can get pretty crowded. Plenty of restaurants to choose from.

Everyone should walk down the hill from Acropolis and go to the Plaka for eating and shopping. Wonder around in the crooked streets and if time over to the ancient Agora

Nice for day and evening strolls. Window shop the whole area and compare prices in order to get your best deals.

In the old centre, the main shopping alleyway is abundant with waiters inviting you to dine! Shops selling tourist stuff left right and centre! But still, it manages to be just about quaint!

I would have given Plaka 5 stars as the place is definitely worth it. But one greedy shopkeeper really pushed it when he gave me back my change and tried to sell me an olive wood utensil for double the price of what he had...More

and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to

Hi, I visited in April and it was pretty quiet even around 10. And I think this will be the same in September. I did walk by Adrianou street and didn't find it noisy post 10 during my visit.
