Authentic Athens Guided Tour

1 review | 1 traveller
I enjoyed this guided tour of Athens off the tourist trail. Joséphina allowed me to discover places that are not mentioned in the guides. I went back alone to a few places ... (TAF) and even to "kpivos" to buy donuts ... (Thank you Joséphina, they are excellent ...) She knows the history of her country and her city well. , the explanations provided interested me tirelessly. Thanks also to Joséphina for the links and other information.

Authentic Athens Guided Tour

We'll meet at Sintagma Square at 9:30 am and start a tour that'll take us to see the most alternative facades of the Greek capital. Athens is a city full of contrasts, as it perfectly combines its incredible and rich past with today's society. Let's discover it!

Nearby we'll find the Ancient Royal Palace, which today houses the Council of the Hellenes or Parliament of Greece. From there we'll walk along the elegant neighbourhoods of Athens, where we'll see some of the ruins of the city or the School of Fine Arts, a grand building that you'll love.

We'll then pass by the new buildings of Athens, perfect examples of the modernist movements that the city has experienced in recent decades. We'll also walk through some of the busiest streets of the city, full of bars and restaurants whose walls are covered with graffiti.

We'll continue the tour of alternative Athens until we reach the Flea Market, located in the Monastiraki neighbourhood. Did you know that it has four different religions? This area is a true reflection of the coexistence of the West and the East.

We'll end the tour at the market at 1.30 pm.
