Next to the walk is the Dionyssiou Areopagitou, a pedestrian walk that leads from the Acropolis to Plaka. Meander through the Plaka, the old city of Athens, and enjoy the winding pedestrian streets, small shops, and tavernas, glimpses of ancient and century-old architecture, and a number of museums. Plaka is what Athens used to be before it grew into a sprawling modern metropolis.

Today Plaka has artists’ galleries, monuments to ancient playwrights, cobblestones and no cars, and the ambiance of a lively village that isn’t quite part of the 21st century.

Grab your map, check out the ruins and remains uncovered when Greece built the Syntagma metro station. There are artifacts displayed right in the station. Walk past the Greek parliament and stop at Zappeion Hall where you can view columns from the Temple of Zeus and see Hadrian’s Arch, before heading back to the meeting point that our driver has pointed to you, and drive you back to your cruise ship pier.
