Athens Neighbourhood Small Group Walking Tour
Uncover Athens’ long history and explore the Greek capital on foot with this half-day walking tour. Feel like you’ve stepped into a real-life history book as you get up close to world-famous landmarks, UNESCO-listed ruins and opulent royal palaces. Then, step off the beaten path to discover busy markets, modern sights and much-loved local spots. Numbers limited to 12 people on this small-group tour, ensuring personalized commentary from the guide.
What to Expect
Your eye-opening walking tour begins when you meet your guide and the rest of the group in central Athens. Discover the secrets of one of the oldest cities in the world with your guide. Learn about Athens’ history, which dates back more than 3,400 years, and about how it has evolved from the birthplace of democracy to a buzzing modern city.
Venture off the beaten path to places that only the locals know about to understand the ever-changing spirit of the city. Visit historic landmarks, iconic neighborhoods where traces of the reign of the Ottoman Empire can still be found and ancient ruins. Follow your guide through bustling markets, around royal palaces and near ancient rivers and tombs.
Learn about the missing link between this city’s ancient past and modern present day. You’ll have a deeper understanding of one of Greece’s best cities when the tour concludes in the Gazi neighborhood, a now-hip area that surrounds the city’s old gas works.
