DescriptionExplore another side of Athens on this guided private walking tour through its hipster scene. Discover hip coffee bars, snack on delicious street food, meet young locals helping the city’s creativity thrive, and more. After being picked up, begin your hipster walk just off Korai Street, passing through the numerous stoas (covered alleys) of the city, where cult cinemas and hidden stores tell unique stories of the city. The first stop is a jewelry workshop run by a young, local artist. The showroom is located in an old grocery market building in the buzzing city center. Chat to the artist about her techniques and browse through her unique pieces to find out what it takes to open a business during turbulent financial times. Next, enjoy a gourmet and organic snack in a high-quality, hip street food eatery that serves traditional recipes from Greece and Asia Minor, using only products produced and packaged by local farmers and vendors. Afterward, visit a favorite spice house, heady with aromas. Learn about the importance of Greece’s geographical location, which brings together traders from the east and west. 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. Next, walk through a hidden side street of Athens, loved by the hipster community because of its quaint bars, cool vibes, and the charming neoclassical buildings surrounding it. Here, if circumstances allow, you might be lucky enough to experience a musical presentation in a contemporary creative music lab. Stop for a caffeine fix at a cooperative that promotes a fair-trade market and supports producers directly. The next culinary experience comes from a foodie joint that sits on a lovely pedestrian street. Be welcomed by the friendly owners and exotic smells and sample a tasty savory delight. Once you’ve filled your belly, take a wander in the Commercial Triangle District, an area that has been completely reborn in the last decade due to the new generation’s creativity. Next up, head through the Red Light District to one of the most alternative neighborhoods of Athens, known as Psirri. Pass by artsy vibrant alleys, innovative designers’ collectives, vintage shops, secret underground clubs, and hip hangouts. Discover old items and recall your childhood memories and the 80s and 90s cultures. The walking tour comes to an end with a yummy organic ice cream made with fresh high-quality products and raw ingredients. Before being dropped off back at your accommodation, be sure to ask your local guide for more hints and tips on how to get the best out of your trip to amazing Athens.
