The historic Plaka district might be one of Athens’ most popular tourist destinations, but there’s another part of the area that visitors rarely see, one where the city’s ancient heart beats a little louder. Under the shadow of the Acropolis, this is the place that saw the birth of classical Greek and Western civilization and also the turbulent arrival of Christianity. There are traces here of the ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans, found in the ruins, churches, local houses and – most importantly – in the food.

Greece has one of world’s oldest winemaking cultures, but for decades its wine has had a less than stellar reputation. No more. In fact, over the last few years, Greece has emerged as perhaps the most exciting up-and-coming wine-producing region in Europe, with a new generation of innovative vintners bottling exceptional wines, often using forgotten native grape varietals that are now being rediscovered.
