A walking tour around Odessa with the visit to a local market.


This tour is a bargain tour because of its price. The price is low, because the tour is for daring people, who dare to walk for five hours (with the possibility to stop and have a drink or lunch along the way). The places we'll visit:

Garden, , Passage, Sobornaya square, monument to prince Vorontsov, St. Transfiguration cathedral and an extensive shopping area for souvenirs, Odessa post office, kirch (Lutheran church of St Paul, built in 1825-27), Ukrainian market, called "New Market".
This tour is also available on wheels. Contact me for prices.
