This four-hour night walk begins as you meet with your Athenian nightlife expert at the Syntagma Metro Station, where you will have the chance to admire the Hellenic Parliament with the Presidential Guard, the Evzones, an elite unit of the Greek army that guards the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in front of the Hellenic Parliament building and the Presidential Mansion.

After a bit you will enter into the first bar of the night, situated in one of the wealthiest and upmarket districts of the capital, the Kolonaki district (literally meaning "little column"). Located on the southern slopes of Lycabettus hill, Kolonaki is the leading shopping area of Athens and home to the city's greatest concentration of trendy fashion boutiques and many upscale cafés, bars and restaurants.

After you enjoyed your first drink of the night, you will find yourself walking by some of the most beautiful buildings in Athens, like the National Library of Greece, the National and Kapodistrian University and the Academy of Athens. After visiting at least two more bars for drinks, including one of the top 10 bars in the world and another one which prides itself on having one of the greatest varieties of Greek drinks in the country, your walk will take you to the famous Monastiraki District, where you can find the perfect place to honor one of the most cherished habits in Greece, which is to grab a late-night bite.

The tour will then end at the Monastiraki Metro Station, under the beautiful Acropolis.
