A time-capsuled gem lies in the shadow of Acropolis. Anafiotika is a scenic neighborhood which climbs up the Rock of Acropolis. It came to life after some construction workers from the island of Anafi built their houses there. This is why this area resembles a Greek island. The current residents keep the buildings as they used to be in an attempt to preserve an atmosphere from a past era. Anafiotika could be labeled as the most surprising area in Athens. It is not every day that you see an island background in the center of a capital. Anafiotika is worth your visit!

Hidden Athens: The Past & Present
We meet Eleni in the centre of Athens. Tour took a bit over 4h but that's because we had some lovey chats and stopped midway for coffee. Speaking of that, the tour was really enjoyable precisely because it didn't feel like an industrial tour - might more intimate and discrete. We saw some amazing street art, some beautiful views of Athens. Throughout the tour Eleni was providing commentary on the history both recent and ancient of the areas we were visiting. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone curious to visit off-beats Athens whilst still keeping track of major places. Word of caution - lots of walking involved and take some water with you.
Greek Brunch with a Food Blogger
It was nice to taste and hear about Greek food, Marilena had put in a lot of effort and it was all very delicious. Furthermore, she was flexible to prepare special vegetarian food, and very friendly to give tips about the city as well. I recommend visiting her while in Athens, you wont regret it! :)
