Get to see the real Athens on this full-day walking tour that shows off all the things Greece is famous for: from history, mythology, architecture to food!
You’ll meet your local guide at Kotzia Square, located in the heart of Athens. The square is surrounded by gorgeous neoclassical buildings built in the early 18th century, as well as some ancient ruins.
From there, your guide will lead you to the Central Market, where you’ll discover a variety of delicious Greek specialties. From the simple koulouri (round bread with sesame seeds) and delicate local pastries, to the Greek staples of feta and olives, the Central Market is a feast for the senses. Listen to the vendors calling out the deals of the day and prep your cameras because you’ll want to snap a few shots of the colourful scenes.
Next up on this tour, we’ll drop by a Greek deli that sells traditional products and is a popular shopping spot for locals. You’ll get to taste some unique delights from every corner of Greece, learning all about our culinary traditions and the Mediterranean diet.
We’ll then walk to Monastiraki Square, the heart of the city from ancient times and still a gathering place today. We’ll venture through the vintage and secondhand shops at the flea market and you’ll learn how to bargain like a Greek!
Here you’ll have a bit of free time to wander and explore on your own. Our recommendation is to do as the Greeks do and order a coffee at one of the many cafés around the square and just sip as you watch the people passing by. We’ll meet for the second half of our tour at Panepistimio Station, we’ll gather together and take off on a detour down Athens’ back alleys and into the neighbourhoods you won’t find in guidebook pages!
Our next stop will be a secret garden in the centre of the city, a place only known to locals. You’ll stand amazed in front of unique monuments and hear the myths and tales that surround these legendary buildings.
If you have a sweet tooth, then our next stop will be your favorite, a quirky little sweet shop that’s perfect for picking up a tasty souvenir to take home with you!
Finally, no bohemian tour of Athens would be complete without a stroll through the once industrial neighbourhood of Gazi, a must-see for any visitor, known for its graffiti decorated alleys, and fashionable boutiques. Here, you will see the old mingling with the new, along streets that connect the past and the present. As we walk we’ll get a literal taste for Athenian life.
