What you can expect
This tour is a first hand experience of Athens and matches beautifully different aspects of urban life.
From Omonia metro station as a starting point, we will walk around the streets of Omonia square and explore the numerous ethnic shops. This is a great opportunity to witness the multicultural nature of the capital. The colours and aromas of the streets around Varvakeios Agora will, for sure, overwhelm you! Small shops that sell all sort of goods from herbs, nuts, spices to cheese, meat and dairy products are located here .
From the busy market, we will head towards Exarcheia, Athens’ student area. A bohemian neighborhood that combines beautifully the old, the alternative and the modern.
A place abuzz of street art- every inch of wall is considered a canvas and covered with vibrant colours and scenes delivering messages- record stores, publishing houses, coffee shops and bars. Exarcheia is a great place to explore with beautiful-even with a decay feeling- neoclassical architecture.
The tour will round off at the top of Lycabettus Hill. The tallest hill in Athens will enthrall you with the panoramic view of the city.
By the end of the photo tour you will have a variety of images from street photography and architecture to street art and urban landscape, you will witness the rich tapestry of Athens and step closer to its true soul.
