    Stop At: The Academy of Athens, 28 Panepistimiou Avenue, Athens 106 79 Greece

    We’ll start our tour by sipping a traditional Greek coffee in a secret garden in the centre of the city, a place only known to locals. You’ll stand with awe in front of unique monuments and hear the myths and tales that surround these legendary buildings. Learn about kings and queens, heroes and outlaws, but also about a hidden Athens beneath your feet. The soul of a city is its people, and you are going to hear and see their traditions and superstitions.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Psirri, Athens Greece

    Continuing our walk, we’ll head off the beaten track and into back lanes and past bohemian workshops of the Psirri neighborhood, to see how life is for middle class Athenians. We’ll check out the surprisingly bustling art scene in the city streets — in fact, 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, which means ‘written.’

    Duration: 1 hour 25 minutes

    Stop At: Gazi, Voutadon Street Kerameikos Metro Station, Athens Greece

    During our Athens tour, we’ll see the old mingling with the new, along streets that connect (or divide) the past and the present. Think ancient tombs and factory chimneys, art centres, and hidden courtyards. And along the way, we’ll get a literal taste for Athenian life with tastings of sweet delights and sips of local spirits.
