Plaka is the lower, flat part of the Old Town located at the foot of the Acropolis. It is the most popular destination for visitors to the capital. The pleasant colors and architecture of the neoclassical houses, the little gardens carefully manicured by the inhabitants of the area, and the atmosphere of Plaka itself will undoubtedly charm you. Even the air is different, lighter, more fragrant, and more like a gift from the gods.
