Description

With a recorded history that spans over 3,400 years, Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world. This alternative walking tour takes you through Athens' rich history and multifaceted culture, surprising and enchanting you around every street corner. As you stroll through Athens' primeval streets, learn from your knowledgeable guide about the complex history of the ancient city. Visit landmark buildings such as the Parliament, the Academy, the University and the National Library, and come to understand their role in the construction of a contemporary European capital. Stroll through the beautiful neighborhoods of Psiri and Monastiraki, where the footprint of the Ottoman Empire is still present, to understand how the old city and its traditions mixed – or didn’t– with Western European values and ideas. Pass through Omonia Square, Kotzia Square, the central markets and many other fascinating sites, and discover the missing link between the glorious ancient past and the frantic, modern present.
