I walked around Plaka today for a few hours (my favorite neighborhood in the city) and stumbled upon the beautiful and small Museum of Folk Music, afterwards we stopped at a Yiasemi cafe the was scattered over these steep marble stairs. The vibe was excellent and the coffee was just as great, I highly recommend it. https://www.yiasemi.gr

The Plaka area in Athens is truly magical any time of year! Next time I am in Athens I will check that cafe out as well.

Here are some suggestions of things to do while visiting the Plaka area of Athens:

I have never been to this museum, but thanks for sharing the link. It looks worthwhile to put on the list. The Plaka is my favorite neighborhood in Greece. I love all the historical stuff, but there are also some great shops and restaurants.

Monastiraki and Plaka are the best areas of Athens hands down!

Monastiraki and Plaka are the best place for shopping and eating restaurants! They're both really close to the Acropolis and there are many local shops and restaurants. I really love the area and highly suggest that you visit the area and even get a hotel that's closeby because there are just so many things to do. Its pretty safe, which is important because Athens is getting slightly dangerous. :)


This is what Christmas time in Athens looks like

The most beautiful city on earth ❤️
