Itinerary

Anyone who’s dreamed of visiting Athens has likely read about its ancient glory: the Parthenon, the Caryatids, and all the other wonders of Greece's glorious past. But Athens isn’t only about the past! It’s also a city very alive in the present, with modern-day stories and secrets just as exciting as the Greek myths!

On this Athens city tour, you’ll stroll beyond the traditional guidebook sites, and visit lesser known neighborhoods favored by locals, and discover secret corners that aren’t found online.

We’ll start our tour by sipping a traditional Greek coffee in a secret garden in the center of the city, a place only known to locals. You’ll stand with awe in front of unique monument and hear the myths and tales that surround these legendary buildings. Learn about kings and queens, heroes and outlaws, but also about a hidden Athens beneath your feet. The soul of a city is its people, and you are going to hear and see their traditions and superstitions.

Continuing our walk, we’ll head off the beaten track and into back lanes and past bohemian workshops, to see how life is for middle class Athenians. We’ll check out the surprisingly bustling art scene in the city streets — in fact, the street art scene in Athens is one of the biggest in the world, and even the word ‘graffiti’ comes from the Greek word grafi, which means ‘written.’

During our Athens tour, we’ll see the old mingling with the new, along streets that connect (or divide) the past and the present. Think ancient tombs and factory chimneys, art centers, and hidden courtyards. And along the way, we’ll get a literal taste for Athenian life with tastings of sweet delights and sips of local spirits.

By the end of this tour, you will have experienced the real flavors of the oldest European city, Athens!
