Plaka and Monastiraki, the most tourist areas of Athens, excite with the picturesque corners and at the same time they provide history lessons. The alleys of Plaka, which reach until the rock of the Acropolis, the island neighborhood of Anafiotika, the blossoming bougainvilleas, the taverns and the stores of the tourist items create the absolute scenery for endless walks. And Monastiraki is available for walks at the countless small stores and the street vendors’ benches. Traffic is worst every Sunday, when the large outdoor bazaar, Giusurum, is set there.
