Plaka – Athens, Greece

Walking the narrow lanes of the Plaka neighborhood in Athens, one can’t help but notice the variety of colorful, elegant, worn, and graffitied doors of the 19th-century buildings. Efforts to restore and preserve Plaka have been underway for many years. It’s a neighborhood consisting of mostly restored neoclassical buildings sprinkled with neglected ones in the midst of ancient ruins. When I need to escape the clamor of Athens, Plaka offers breathing space away from the hectic pace of the city.

  1. Beautiful doors in Plaka (it has been long ago we were in Athens, so am trying to remember “where” it is) -also saw your earlier post about Plaka. I LOVED almost everything about Athens – except for the traffic! After one day we decided to bring our rental car back because it was too stressful!
