Welcome to Aria Plaka Residence in the Plaka neighbourhood of Athens, the capital of Greece. Aria Plaka Residence is a luxury holiday home located on Tripodon street in the Athens neighbourhood of Plaka, and probably the oldest in Athens having maintained its name for 25 centuries.
The Plaka neighbourhood consists of narrow, labyrinthine streets, houses and mansions dating from the 19th-century Neoclassical period and the Turkish occupation. It lays across the eastern side of the Acropolis and marks the core of the historic centre of Athens, giving a feeling of journeying back in time. An abundance of ancient monuments can be found in this area, including the Lysikrates Monument, the Roman Agora with the renowned “Tower of the Winds” (1st century B.C.), Hadrian’s Library (132 A.D.) with scores of large and small churches representing both Byzantine art and architecture at their finest. Picturesque tavernas, cafes, bars and small souvenir shops with traditional Greek products and treats add to the area’s magical ambience.
Landmarks of major historical heritage like the Parthenon, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Philoppapos Hill and the Ancient Agora are highly recommended to all our visitors who want to learn more of the nation’s great past.
