The Shops of Plaka

Each time we visit Athens, we head to Plaka on our last day in the city to stroll the hilly, narrow streets under the Acropolis, and poke around in the souvenir shops. You will find an abundance of trinkets, jewelry, leather goods, clothing, and many kinds of unique treasures on display in a meticulously organized fashion along the famous Adrianou Street. Despite the many hands of tourists, everything miraculously stays in order. The utter simplicity of things neatly in their place brings a sense of calm to this busy tourist destination. Take a look at a few shops of Plaka shown in the photos below, and you will see what I mean.
