Full description
Athens is a fascinating city full of contrasts that can be intimidating for the first-timer. Save yourself the stress and worry and visit the most important landmarks as well as amazing hidden treasures off the beaten path in the city.

Your private tour of Athens commences as you meet your guide and head up towards the ancient hill following the beautiful cobblestone pedestrian walkway of Dionyssiou Areopagitou. Pass by the Acropolis and make your first stop at the Areios Pagos rock so as to enjoy the stunning panoramic views of the city. Then descend, admiring the amazing views of the ancient Agora which was the commercial, political and religious centre of ancient Athens. Continue your walk through the heart of the historical centre where you will discover Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman traces.

Then immerse yourself in the cobbled alleys of the Plaka neighborhood, with its distinct and atmospheric architecture, before reaching the bustling modern city center. There, explore the commercial side of the city and enjoy its multiple facets. End our tour in Monastiraki Square by wandering around its flea market. You are then free to continue exploring on your own or, depending on your energy, continue the walk to the Thission area.
