This fascinating tour will show you Athens in its truest sense: a complex, multilayered place comprised of centuries of history and influences from the East and West. See Athens' most revered sites and appreciate the beauty of this special place.

This alternative walking tour takes you through Athens' rich history and multifaceted culture, surprising and enchanting you around every street corner.

As you stroll through Athens' primeval streets, learn about the complex history of the ancient city. Visit landmark buildings such as the Parliament, the Academy, the University and the National Library.

Stroll through the beautiful neighborhoods of Psiri and Monastiraki, where the footprint of the Ottoman Empire is still present, to understand how the old city and its traditions mixed with Western European values.
