    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and small group of no more than 12 in Kotzia Square to begin your walking tour of Athens. Admire the square’s neoclassical buildings, built in the early 18th century, and listen as your guide offers an introduction to historic Athens, before heading off to the Central Market.
    Browse the stalls of the lively local market, as your guide explains the different delicacies on sale, and get chance to taste Greek specialties like koulouri (round bread with sesame seeds), sweet pastries, feta and olives. Continue your culinary tour of Athens with a stop at a traditional Greek deli and sip a glass of Tsipouro (Greek brandy) as you get the inside scoop on modern life in Athens.
    Next, soak up the buzzing atmosphere of central Athens as you stroll through the busy streets to Monastiraki Square, home to the city’s biggest flea market. There, you’ll have chance to practice your haggling skills as you rummage through the vintage stalls and secondhand goods.
    After a short break to wander around the stalls or stop for coffee at one of the cafés around the square, hop on the metro to Panepistimio, where you’ll meet back up with your guide for the second half of the tour. Set out to explore the vibrant neighborhood, following your guide around the maze-like back alleys to little known local haunts and places you won’t find in guidebook pages!
    Along the way, visit a secret garden, watch local craftsmen and artists at work, admire historic monuments, and taste delicious ‘lukumades’ (sweet honey pastries). As you stop to admire the Acropolis at a rooftop café, your guide will set the scene with fascinating myths, legends and stories of ancient Athens.
    Next, stroll through the cobblestone lanes of the picturesque Plaka neighborhood, where you’ll get a feel for Athens’ diversity as you pass traditional taverns, admire the pretty buildings and peek into colorful designer boutiques. Finally, pay a visit to one of the city’s oldest bars, where you can celebrate the end of your tour with a glass of Greek wine.
