Heart of Athens Private Walking Tour lets you meander through Athens with a knowledgeable guide dedicated exclusively to you and your group. In fact, the best way to discover Athens is by wandering around the cobblestone streets.  At the same time, take in the remnants of history from Antiquity to Middle Ages and beyond. This Athens Walking Tour is a great chance for travelers who want to feel the vibrant splendor of this old city.

This Athens Private Walking Tour begins at Syntagma square at a time which is convenient for you. There, you will see the guard change which is a must when visiting Athens. Also, at Syntagma there is the Greek Parliament – the government’s building – once the king’s palace!

Your tour guide will now lead you to the most famous street of the city, Ermou Street.  Here, you will be amazed by ancient orthodox churches, the modern market and classical luxury buildings of the previous century. Then, pass through Monastiraki square and feel the harmony of the ancient buildings coupled with the modern ones. The rock of the Acropolis is also the best view from this square!

Soon your private walking tour will proceed towards what the Greeks consider the very heart of the Classical City – Plaka area (Old town). It is a mosaic of civilizations which make the area so unique. Full of small houses, trees, ancients and locals walk everywhere! Admire St. Philothei house/Venizelos mansion (the oldest house in Athens) and Hadrian’s Library. Did you know that the Greeks had a forecast building? Discover it in the Roman agora with our guide and learn how it worked! Moreover, while you walk in Plaka area, observe the Greeks and hear from our guide about the Greek way of life.

By now you will have noticed that Athens is an open-air museum and art floods every corner of the historic center and beyond. The Ancient Greek agora is no exceptionThis is where you can explore the best-preserved buildings like Stoa of Attalos and the temple of Hephaestus.

Your tour ends at Thiseio where you can sit at a café and you admire the Acropolis!

Cannot say enough about this tour and how much fun we had! We were 4 couples that have been friends for years. Our tour guide, Zoi, was so knowledgable, yet very interesting and fun. The tour ended with a "light" lunch and Zorba dancers! It was so much fun! Opa!!
