Really enjoyed my tour with Nikos. He thoroughly covered Ancient to Modern Greek history and kept it fun and interesting with a quiz (and stickers!) as we went. I liked that we went off the beaten path and weren't constantly on the obvious tourist path....More
Had a great time with Nikos on this free walking tour.
The tour was a great mix of fun and input. We went to some nice and interesting spots that were not the best-known spots in Athens but definitely worth a visit. We even went...More
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
