Full description
Meet your group at Syntagma Square and prepare for a memorable excursion brimming with history and culture. See the historical neighborhood of Plaka, with its labyrinthine streets and classical architecture, and have a coffee break. This district's proximity to the Acropolis gave the nickname "Neighborhood of the Gods."

Your guide will then share with you a variety of aspects of everyday life in this quiet but culturally rich part of the city.

After a lovely and scenic route where you will have the opportunity to a take many photos, reach Dionysiou Aeropagitou street, the “grande promenade” of Athens. Your morning stroll goes on through a hidden shortcut. Have the chance to listen to great stories from Greek mythology and you will see the road where the Panathenaia (the Athens celebration) were held in the past.

Next stop of the tour will be the Roman Market, where you will be informed about the historic importance of this archeological place and admire Adrianos’ impressive library. At this point, learn a lot about the great monuments built in that area. Before you realize it, you will then already be at Monastiraki Square, the most crowded and vivid place of the city! Following your local expert, you will walk to the famous Flea Market.

The last part of your morning adventure takes you to Psyri, a fashionable and trendy district known for its charming bars, cafes, and live music venues. Learn how the neighborhood's reputation has changed from a dreaded area to a beloved part of the city.
