About
For centuries, Athens was part of the Ottoman Empire. Although the medieval period is long gone, Ottoman heritage is still visible. Join us to this amazing walking tour, travel back in the time of Emperors, Sultans, harems and bazaars, discover unknown hidden treasures in some of the most crowded districts and revive the mixed lifestyle and culture during this less known but equally important period of history. At the end of the tour join a traditional hammam experience, where you will discover an oasis of serenity and tranquility where your inner energy and your outer glow will regenerate!
