Full description
Discover the alternative side of the ancient city of Athens. Stroll through the city’s unique neighborhoods and learn about their history. Your local private guide will show you all the authentic spots and uncover the city’s secrets for you. Begin your tour in the heart of the historic city, the Monastiraki area. Admire one of the oldest churches and pass different places which are hosting cultural events and exhibitions. Take a look at the unique souvenirs displayed at the flea market before wandering the streets of Psiri. Listen to your local guide stories and gain insights into the city’s modern culture.

Known for its hip bars, galleries and theaters, the area is one of the coolest in the city. Make a stop at an old bakery and enjoy a tasty freshly baked ‘koulouri,’ which is a circled bread stick. Tip: take care, it might be hot. Continue your walk through this hip area and pass by cool street art, interesting architectural buildings and stylish venues.

Go off the beaten path and head off into the Exarcheia, a historical area where present and past mingle. The area is full of young people, amazing street art and a symbol of anarchist movements. Discover different political messages, hear the stories behind them and how the economic crisis influenced the social movement.
