As awkward as this may sound to you, these photos are NOT from a Greek island... This photoshoot took place at the very heart of Athens, Anafiotika! But how on earth did this happen?? According to an article I read recently, in the mid 19th century, King Othon brought the most famous craftsmen from Santorini and Anafi to Athens to build the new palace and many other magnificent buildings. Since they had to stay here for long, they picked a space right under the Acropolis and re-constructed a Cycladic island block of streets and houses to remind them of their own.

Ever since, not much have changed there. If you are planning to spend some time in Athens then you definitely have to visit Anafiotika.

Just because heaven is a place on earth~
