The flat is only a few blocks from Syntagma square and the parliament OR the Acropolis OR the shopping district of Ermou street OR Monastiraki flea market or basically ANYthing you will want to see! The courtyard next door has plenty of restaurants and coffee shops plus a big Starbucks with plenty of maps and guidebooks. There's a pharmacy right next door, bank with ATM, and grocery, so it's easy to get anything - or anywhere - you want. There is a supermarket right opposite our building.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Friendly & outgoing! Love traveling, meeting new people, listening to music and making everything possible to ensure that anyone who visits Athens has a great time! I have an international career & hosting for me is not a business. It's about becoming part of your great Athens experience so that you will return back to Athens or tell you fiends to visit - in that way I feel that I am giving something back to my city! Please feel free to contact me in case you have any questions whatsoever!

Why Plaka, Athina, Greece:
Great building, great location! It is the oldest district in Athens with outstanding scenery. The moment you start walking on its paved narrow lanes you get the feeling that you travel back in time. Beautiful houses with neoclassic colors, well preserved gardens, the elegance and the atmosphere of the whole area. If you decide to walk around the area, make sure you have a map, because Plaka is like a labyrinth and you will probably get lost in its lanes. You will find souvenir shops in the central street of the district Adrianos Str., as well as in other streets.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Location, location, location! Look up the area Plaka in Athens guides and I think you will agree!
