Perfectly located, nestled in the shadow of the Acropolis and more famous districts like Plaka, Koukaki is one of the city’s most creative and charming corners, with its unevenly paved sidewalks lined with bitter orange trees, it has an undeniably urban village feel. It is the lesser-known sister of Makriyianni, which boasts the elegant Acropolis Museum on the sweeping cobbled esplanade of Dionysiou Areopagitou. Although lesser known, this unassuming neighbourhood has begun to capture the attention of Athenians and visitors alike. For the latter, it is perhaps best known for its staggering popularity as an Airbnb destination, ranking in the top five most interesting neighbourhoods in the world to stay. It isn’t difficult to understand why.
