When in Athens, venture away from the typical sites and explore the neighborhood of Anafiotika. It's like a tiny quiet village was planted in the middle of a major metropolis. A relic of the old days, the area now is a maze of small decorative walkways and cozy places to eat and drink. The Fisherman's Tavern had amazing food and was a welcome diversion from the typical gyros and souvlaki you'll find in the Plaka. This shot is everything I'd ever want in a backyard patio. My fiance and I hung a large print of it in our kitchen just to take us away every now and then.
