We had very limited time in Athens and decided to book a private tour to see the main sites. In Athens it can be a little tricky finding a guide because many taxi cab drivers pose as tour guides, but they can't actually offer you a tour. After some digging I found Angelos from Athens Walking Guide and he provided... More

Angelos booked a two day tour for our family just weeks before our visit. We spent 2-3 hours per visit with Angelos and covered so much history. We went to the Acropolis museum, the Acropolis and Agora. I have two children ages 12 and 14. They enjoyed all of the time with Angelos and asked many questions answered with ease.... More

We set up our tour of the Acropolis and Agora a few weeks before our visit. They payment method and booking was easy enough through their website. They arranged our tour with Athanasia and we were more than pleased with her. She met us at our hotel early morning and we walked a short distance to the gate nearest to... More

We've had quite a number of guides in different cities now, and can easily put Angelos at the top of the list. To start, he is very good at reading his clientele. From how much we wanted to learn vs. see, or how fast we wanted to walk vs. sit and stare. The thing that he was the best at... More

Our travel agent had arranged a walking tour of Athens with Angelos Kokkaliaris, licensed tourist guide and archaeologist. He picked up at our hotel on time and was ready to go. He was very well informed, pleasant, able to answer all questions that we had. He took us into the beautiful Athens subways to show us the amazing ruins found... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small 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 up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
