A walking tour in the city of Athens, following different routes, mixing the old and the new, that gives you the opportunity to learn a lot. We learn our lessons from History, while at the same time we get to know Athens and also get a general overview of the ancient Graeco-Roman world. In our walking tour we discuss about history, politics and philosophy.

George was awesome, he was incredibly knowledgeable as he was a former archeology student, and knew all the best spots. He taught us how to be citizens and not idiots, highly recommend!

Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a

Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
