Discover the secret Athens

Walk away from the crowds and discover the hidden gems of Athens. A leisurely stroll in Plaka, the old district of Athens will give you the opportunity to see significant but hidden landmarks and sights. A tour of art, history, architecture, archaeology, social history and lifestyle. Create memorable experiences and capture these travel memories through the unique photo stops. This Athens city tour will give you the chance to see the real beauty of Athens and awesome corners of the city.


Wandering in the colorful streets of Plaka we see the first hospital of Athens, the older distillery, the first public school and the older mansion of the city. Before we discover the remains of Roman Athens we walk around Anafiotika, a beautiful district that resembles a picturesque Greek island village. On the way to our walk we see the older weather station on the world, we admire byzantine churches, Muslim mosques, and several monuments that hold impressive stories. At the end of our tour we feel the local vibe mingling with Greeks in the busy flea market in Monastiraki.
