What to expect

Time travel back to ancient Athens. Everyone who has passed through here has passed and left their mark, civilizations that have either integrated or not into the modern Greek identity.

Your walking tour will start outside the ancient Agora market, from there you'll head off to the Observatory and the Pnyx hill, the place where the parliament met. There you'll view see the Orator podium where important Athenian citizens spoke.

Close by you'll find hill of the Nymphs, the temple of Olympian Zeus and be able to view the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Take a stroll in the narrow alleys of Plaka and head up to Anafiotika located just below the rock of the Acropolis to get a view of the city.

Walk down Tripodon Street, the oldest street in the world, which has been continuously walked on since 4000 BC and leads to the most important monuments and corners of the city.
