Full description
Enjoy an alternative tour of Athens and go beyond the usual tourist spots. Say goodbye to the Parthenon and Caryatids, and hear about the city in the present day. Stroll beyond the traditional guidebook sites, visit lesser known neighborhoods favored by locals, and discover secret corners that aren’t found online.

Start by sipping a traditional Greek coffee in a secret garden in the center of the city at a place known only to locals. Stand in awe in front of unique monuments, and hear the myths that surround these legendary buildings. Learn about kings and queens, heroes and outlaws, and a hidden Athens beneath your feet.

Stroll into back lanes and past bohemian workshops. See what life is like for middle class Athenians. Check out the surprisingly bustling art scene in the city streets. The street art scene in Athens is one of the biggest in the world, and even the word "graffiti" comes from the Greek word grafi ("written").

Compare the new with the old on streets that connect (or divide) the past and present. Think ancient tombs and factory chimneys, art centers, and hidden courtyards. Along the way, get a literal taste for Athenian life with tastings of sweet delights and sips of local spirits.
