What to expect
Experience the modern, alternative side of the ancient city of Athens. Get lost on a walking tour of the most unique neighborhoods in Athens, learning about their history as you visit secret alleys and cool coffee shops. Allow your experienced local guide to take you to the authentic spots young Athenians hang out in. Pick up unique souvenirs at the flea market before wandering through the streets of Psiri, one of the coolest neighborhoods in the city. Formerly a community of leather craftsmen, this neighborhood is now full of street art, cool bars, galleries, and theaters and is known as an "anti-establishment" part of town. Enter the Kerameikos cemetery, and continue down an ancient road where ancient graffiti meets modern day street art.Next, head into the Athens Public Market, where butchers have set up shop for more than century. Buy olives, spices, cheese, and other yummy snacks to bring home with you or to eat while you walk! Pop into the secret underground restaurant at the bottom of the vegetable market, or head down to the excellent herb, plants, and spice vendors. From the market, walk to the Roman Agora, explore Plaka and discover the hidden island of Athens, a district with narrow streets and alleys. Along the way, stop in a local coffee shop and taste a Greek snack.
