Make your way to your next stop, Plaka, via its small enclave of Anafiotika. This historical neighbourhood features whitewashed houses with shuttered windows that would be more at home on a Greek island. And the reason for that is that they were built by stonemasons from Anafi, an island in the Cyclades, in the mid-nineteenth century. Continue on to the centre of Plaka, Athens’ oldest neighbourhood, where bougainvillea trails down from the roofs of historic homes and restaurants spill out onto the streets. Although some places are a little touristy, it’s still a great place to stop for lunch or a refreshing drink, and arguably the city’s prettiest neighbourhood. There are also jewellery shops, museums, and souvenir shops. Image by Despina Galani from Unsplash
