To the Acropolis follow me.
The next stop is a must Klepsidra Cafe in Syntagma & Plaka. Located next to a little book shop it is tucked away in a quieter spot on the west end of Plaka, with shady outdoor tables and the most ever friendly service. (Generally the hospitality and friendliness of the greeks is everywhere) Klepsidra is a favourite with locals as well and me. In my 4 days I visited 3 times.
Now landed in the Acropolis surprisingly busy even if it is November and very early morning when I came.. But of course a must see.. Once the crowds of the tourist starting to burst I am quickly heading to stroll back to Plaka. Several stops in places where I recognize the locals sitting I am testing the preparation of the coffee, with a greek yogurt some olives and local sweet delicatessen it is time for some more walk. A beautiful hilly stroll and I am stopping by some local artist and purchasing some souvenirs for me to take home.
So tempted to have a another stop in a lovely hidden located local restaurant next to a Sunday school the children are playing around and it feels like a perfect moment. November sun is setting slowly down through the lemon trees. Thespis is another place I am visiting twice during my time here.
Time to leave, the sun is low and I take a couple more cobbled streets down along some Greek houses painted in white and I am back in the Zillers hotel. I can’t resist the aperitif at the garden terrace and enjoying the more metropolitan atmosfere of the city.
This evening I choose to go to Vintage Wine Bar and Bistro if you are someone who like nice wine and like to learn about Greek ones and appreciate local foods with sophisticated approach this is the place. The owners and staff are extremely knowledgeable about each detail and will share with you the all process of creation.
Time to go to bed and I’m already preparing how my day will look tomorrow…… I think I will do the same thing over again.
Ancient city like Athene scream white simple dress with the golden accessories. I am wearing the this year back from the 90s choker in gold with the ever beautiful shelf designs from Tohum. Inspired by “femininity and fertility”, Tohum’s ‘Puka’ necklace is threaded with gold-plated cowrie charms plus a natural one in the center. Style with some vintage longer chains, but it can be worn as a bracelet or layered up with other designs from the collection. I simply love it.
Selected below what I wear from the jewelry to the dress from Cos with the Adidas trainers (good companion on my travels) I personally love the classic designs with a touch of red. Comfortable shoes are must prepare your self for some climbing up. Links to the products are selected.
