Late night at Athens and Plaka begins around about 10:00 PM with bands playing Greek music, the bartenders offering some generous glasses of local wine or ouzo, and of course, Greek dancers performing exotic belly and folk dances, encouraging you to learn the steps and follow them.
It is quite easy to get carried away by the rhythms of the vibrant night out in Plaka – Don’t miss the experience of throwing plates (if allowed), yelling “Opa” while dancing - it is most likely that you will be invited to jump up on the table or the dance floor and join in the fun!
Athens by night is an amazing and memorable experience and our professional drivers and guides will ensure that you will enjoy it to the full.
