Can you guess where this is?

anafiwtika

It must be a greek island somewhere, right?

anafiwtika

Wrong! Here’s a clue:

acropolis

You wouldn’t believe it but this little place is hidden in the middle of Athens! It’s the Anafiotikaa tiny little neighborhood right under the Acropolis. It was built by workers form the island of Anafi (hence the name), who came to Athens in the mid-1800s to help rebuild the city for king Otto  (did you know Greece had a bavarian king for a while?) and decided to make the place feel like home.

The place is a little hidden island in the heart of the city. Walking around its tiny passages you can forget where you are  – it’s so quiet and peaceful, and so colorful. Perfect for a small taste of summer in the winter! :-)
