Visit the Odeon of Herod Atticus, widely known as the Herodion, which was named the second-best theater in the whole world.

Plaka was also known as the Neighborhood of the Gods. In the heart of Plaka, sit and experience the gastronomic traditions of Greece. Enjoy unique flavors and tastes made almost entirely from Greek agricultural and livestock products. Your trip ends as the modern and the old are combined in a feast of senses.
