You fancy an introduction to Athens off-the-beaten-tracks? Let’s have a local insight with this experience, to better understand this city, its history and its present, with an original route through quiet streets and a panoramic view over Athens!

Our moment together will be structured around two main moments. We will meet on the bustling Monastiraki square and ascend the Philopappou hill, a heaven of tranquility in the heart of the metropolis which offers magnificent perspectives on the Acropolis and a panoramic view. Then, we will head to the upper part of Plaka, the old neighborhood of Athens, to wander in its small streets and out the beaten paths spots.

NB: this experience has no particular difficulty (including Philopappou hill) but the capacity to walk for 2:30 to 3 hours (with stairs though). It’s possible with children.

Note as well that this experience is not focused on archeology nor antique history and that we will not enter any site.
