Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: The Academy of Athens, 28 Panepistimiou Avenue, Athens 106 79 Greece

Our hipster walk begins just off Korai Street, passing through the numerous stoas (covered alleys) of the city where cult cinemas and hidden stores abound.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Ermou Street, Athens Greece

Our first stop is a jewellery workshop run by a young, local artist. Her showroom is located in an old grocery market building in the buzzing city centre. We’ll chat to the artist about her techniques and browse through her unique pieces as we find out what it takes to open a business during turbulent financial times.

Moving on to our next stop now, where you’ll enjoy a gourmet and organic snack in a high quality and hip street food eatery that serves traditional dishes made with authentic old recipes from Greece and Minor East and uses only products produced and packaged by local farmers and vendors.

We just love this next stop, a spice house that’s so heady with aromas you will feel as though you have stepped into the ancient Orient. Here you will learn about the importance of Greece’s geographical location, bringing together traders from East and West and how that's influenced the cuisine. Let your senses be awakened by thousands of years of history as you browse the Asian and African spices, Greek and Balkan herbs, Indian sauces and famous French tea brands.

From the spice shop, we’ll walk through a hidden side street of Athens, loved by the hipster community because of its quaint little bars, cool vibes and charming neo-classical buildings that surround it. Here, if we’re lucky and no new tunes are being recorded, we’ll experience a musical presentation in a contemporary creative music lab.

Then, we’ll stop for a caffeine fix at a co-operative that promotes fair-trade market and support producers directly.

Your next culinary experience is coming from a foodie joint that sits on a lovely pedestrian street. Get into the ethnic mood as you’re welcomed by the friendly owners and the exotic smells. Sample a tasty savory delight made by Mama's hand.

Once you’ve filled your belly, you will take a wander around the Commercial Triangle District, an area that has been completely reborn in the last decade due to the new generation’s creativity through crisis.

Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes

Stop At: Psirri, Athens Greece

Next up we’ll head, via the Red Light District, to one of the most alternative neighborhoods of Athens, known as Psirri. We will pass by artsy vibrant alleys, innovative designers’ collectives, vintage shops, secret underground clubs and hip hangouts. Discover old items and recall childhood memories of the 1980s & 90s culture.

Your Athens Reloaded Hipster walking tour comes to an end with a yummy organic ice cream made with fresh high-quality products and selected raw ingredients.

Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes
