We met up with Irene outside the Acropolis Museum for our evening walk around Athens on Greek Independence Day, 25th March. Irene was fantastic. Very informative and good fun. The walk does involve some steep climbs and some of the steps were very dark.

My guide Irene showed us the area surrounding the acropolis in the evening time. The trip was interesting in many ways, we got to hear stories of ancient Greece, and also how modern Greeks are living.

I did this tour on my first night in Athens, right after another walking tour that I did during the day. Nevertheless, Irene showed some places that I hadn't seen before, like Areopagus Hill and Anafiotika. It was nice and the views were amazing!

wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
