What you'll do

You fancy an introduction to Athens off-the-beaten-tracks? Let’s have a local insight with this experience, to better understand this city, its history and its present, with an original route through quiet streets and a panoramic view over Athens! We will meet at Monastiraki, the bustling central square of Plaka, a great spot for an introduction to Athens! From there, we will walk along the agoras to reach the Philopappou hill, a heaven of tranquility in the heart of the metropolis offering magnificent perspectives on the Acropolis and a bird-eye view, from mountain to sea, to become acquainted with the city. Then, we will head to the upper part of Plaka, the old neighborhood of Athens, to wander in its small streets and off-the-beaten-paths spots with neoclassical mansions and Cycladic white washed houses. The rule: feel free to ask any question, about Athens, Greece, you’re next days’ planning or just whatever you like! NB: this experience has no particular difficulty (including Philopappou hill) but the capacity to walk for 2:30 to 3 hours (with stairs though). It’s possible with children. Note as well that this experience is not focused on archeology nor antique history and that we will not enter any site. Want to discover other areas of Athens?
