History

Plaka, also known as the 'neighborhood of the gods', is the oldest neighborhood of Athens and among the oldest in Europe. Anafiotika, the so-called 'hidden neighborhood of Athens', due to its maze-like alleys that make it hard to find for outsiders, is in total contrast to the rest of the city. Besides their picturesque alleys, the neighborhoods boast rich history referring not only to their ancient past but to the latest history of Greece as well. This alternative, guided walking tour of Plaka and Anafiotika aims to go beyond the tourist's eye and show you the true colors of the most famous districts in Athens.

You will also listen to little-known stories and local facts that will surprise you, if not amaze you.

 

Where did the great Pericles meet Aspasia, the beautiful courtesan that stole his heart, starting one of the greatest romances in ancient Greece? What do the little white and blue Anafiotika houses hide beside their Cycladic origins? Who is actually the unsung hero behind the Lysicrates monument? These are only a few of the secrets you will discover during this walking tour.

 

Your next journey will take you all around Greece through taste! Your local guide will take you to an excellent, local wine bar. Breath in the local vibes and the sounds of the Athenian evening as you taste 4 premium Greek wines. Four indigenous Greek varieties, representative of the best regions, producers and crops. White and red wines to satisfy even the most eclectic guest. The wine is accompanied by cheeses (like Gruyere of Naxos and Pecorino of Amfilochia) as well as Greek marmalade and breadsticks.
