Description

Discover the real Athens and explore its modern yet traditional neighbourhoods!

After meeting your guide at the meet-up point, you'll be given a tour of six very different neighbourhoods where you can learn more about Athens' diversity. From the ancient royal palace to the city's upmarket districts, flea markets and traditional working-class neighbourhoods, you'll discover the real Athens beyond the usual tourist trail, and discover a charming city that is full of contrasts.

You'll learn how Athens grew from a small town with 4,000 inhabitants to a modern capital that thrives in the shadow of its glorious past, including amazing modernist architecture and buildings constructed between the two World Wars. Your guide will do more than just show you the city; they will share it with you in a way that embodies the famous Greek hospitality.

You'll have the opportunity to take a coffee break in a hidden-away inner courtyard, right in the middle of one of the busiest parts of Athens. You'll also be able to admire the street art and creativity of the Athenian cultural scene. 

This tour will give you a taste of the city's soul, and immerse you in its people, their customs and their daily life.
