If you want to know what it feels like walking around athens with a passionate local come and join me. When feeling like strolling around in my home town, i have my favourite route. This route is a long walk(about 3h)around the historical center, starting and ending at the monastiraki square, exploring the traditional neighborhoods of Plaka, Monastiraki and Thisseio while scenting the aromas of the vivid flea market.
I was born and raised in the center of Athens and I have lived here all of my life.I have studied history and social anthropology that's why I'm too fascinated to show you the treasures of ancient Athens and explore with you the hidden neighborhoods downtown.I have also attended seminars in history of art,so I can show you a different view of the city.Although I have lived all my life here,I really enjoy my daily walk at the historical center and I would really like to stroll around with you while having a discussion about Athens in ancient years and Athens nowadays.
We are going to be all around the historical center of Athens and some of the most famous and influential neighborhoods like Plaka and Thisseio.
