Plaka is an historical and traditional district in the very center of Athens, under Acropolis. The streets of Plaka are narrow and ascenting and they guide to the Herodeion Odeon and the sacred rock above the city with the Parthenon ancient temple. Fifty years ago Plaka was full of picturesque, small taverns with happy wine lovers, usually drunk and music groups with guitars and mandolins, singing folk songs about love, wine, and beautiful but decieving girls. These songs are really beautiful and create easily a happy and light atmosphere. Enjoy a nice collection of songs that were heard the nights in the ascending streets of Plaka.
