Pláka : Michelin's recommendations
Especially in the upper part, Pláka forms a picturesque web of peaceful small roads and alleys, small squares and terraces linking flights of steps. A few small Byzantine churches alternate with old houses with round-tiled roofs and wooden balconies, sometimes surrounded by hidden gardens from which peek the tops of pine, cypress or fig trees. Views of the town or the Acropolis are revealed here and there. The lower part of Pláka is the area for trade and cheap boarding houses. At night Pláka comes to life... The taverns with terraces covered with a trellis light up with multi-coloured girandoles. Like the Athenians, you can come here to taste Greek cuisine washed down with retsina to the sound of boozookis (or electric guitars), listen to fashionable singers and dance the modern sirtáki. In addition to these taverns there are also «nightclubs» where you can drink while attending a show, of high quality when based around traditional music.
