It's a lovely place. Originally it was used to house the builders who worked at the Parthenon. Since most of them came from the island Anafi, it took the name Anafiotika.

Going to this neighborhood is like going to the greek islands without leaving Athens. The architecture is typical from the Aegean Islands since it was built by immigrants from Anafi island! There is not many people walking around and it is definitely worth a walk!

Lots of little streets with flowers and cafes. Well worth taking a stroll around for photo opportunities.

You'd think you're on a greek island somewhere, all white and bright colours. Narrow streets, steep inclines but beautiful and calm. Must see.

Anafiotika will take you to islands like Mykonos and Santorini with its blue, white and colorful houses! Afternoon walk would be perfect

We found out about this area from an online travel guide. It truly is a lovely area, away from the noise and busyness of the city. Tucked away against the Acropolis Hill, these old buildings built by marble workers hired from the islands to help...More

One of the most beautiful districts in Athens. There is a little bit of everything: ancient ruins, traditional and renovated houses, little coffee shops and tavernas, flowers, museums, galleries. I loved walking there simply as it is or after visiting places close by. Definitely recommend...More

Hi Anafiotika is not on the side of the Acropolis where the museum is. It's on the Plaka side. Adrianou is the main shopping street in the Plaka. If you climb the narrow streets towards the Acropolis and above the Agora... More
