Grand Tour of Athens
Birthplace of drama, democracy and philosophy, Athens today is a maze of aesthetic anarchy filled with steel and concrete edifices and bustling thoroughfares. But hidden away from the busy main roads you will find a secret city of narrow alleyways, hidden courtyards and ancient buildings all of which are cobwebbed by time. Relish this cultural mishmash with this walking tour that explores the neighbourhoods where Athens began.
In a nutshell
This tour spans 3,400 years of Athenian history, including: Greek and Roman ruins; medieval churches; Ottoman mosques; stately neoclassical edifices; vibrant city squares, and colourful markets. Over the course of the walk, your guide aims to give a broad but comprehensive look at the city, explaining in detail how the city as a whole has been planned and built as well as the institutions, individuals, and visionaries who are a part of its long, compelling story.
Please note: This tour will not enter any archaeological sites
