Why locals love it

Athenians had seen the Acropolis before A for Athens opened in 2011. But never this way.
The Acropolis is on eye level, while the view extends to the whole area of Plaka and Monastiraki. On the other side, you have a view of Lycabettus hill and the stunning down-town graffitis, combining the feeling of classic Athens with an urban taste.

Why you should visit it

Although A for Athens is not really a "secret" anymore, it is worth a visit, as it is a guaranteed "take my breath away" moment. The price tag includes the usual Acropolis "bonus", but it is not prohibitive for a coffee, although the main thing is the cocktails - which are actually very good.

Special tip

In the evenings it can be very crowded, so a morning/late afternoon visit is recommended. The entrance is through the hotel on Miaouli Street.
