What to expect
Rise and shine early on a Sunday morrow and join us for an unforgettable walk under the fresh morning sky. You will meet our energetic local guide at Syntagma Square and this is where a walk full of fascinating insights into Athens History, Mythology and the city getting-arounds kicks off!
Watch the ‘evzones’ outside the Greek Parliament Building and take a look around the historic area of Syntagma Square. Wander around the flagstone pathways of the island-like area of Plaka to discover some hidden gems – iconic cafes and small shops. Your local guide will show you the best place to buy the perfect Greek souvenirs and will lead you to a scenic coffee shop in Anafiotika, where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Acropolis and the whole city after an energizing cup of Greek coffee.
Discover a roman house underneath your feet and listen to peculiar stories from Greek Mythology, while you walk by ancient monuments like the Roman Market and Adrianos Library. Find out about a hidden alley that famous Greek festivities – Panathenaia – used to take place to honour goddess Athena and stroll around the most beautiful buildings of the city.
Our walk will lead you towards the buzzing Monastiraki, where you will check out the popular flea market full of multi-coloured shops. We will finish up our full-plate tour in the alternate and coloured-by-street-art area of Psirri and you will be invited to make an important choice: Greek pastry or Greek food and wine? Whatever floats your boat!
