Our flight arrived just before noon and I knew we would be exhausted that day, so I booked us into the Plaka Hotel because of its location in the heart of the Plaka. Our room was ready when we arrived at 1pm so we were able to have a refreshing shower before heading out in search of lunch. We found a lovely courtyard restaurant less than three blocks away. After lunch we did some window shopping, then retired to the hotel for a recuperative nap. Post-nap we walked the Plaka to Syntagma Square and back, then found another lovely restaurant for a sunset repast. That was followed by some more window shopping, then we returned to the hotel and enjoyed drinks in the rooftop garden -what amazing views! Our room also had a view of the Acropolis, and we quite enjoyed seeing it lit up at night. The hotel is truly amazing, and reasonably priced for the location.
