Tour snapshot

This walking tour of Athens introduces you to the alternative and artsy sights of Athens, the kind of places that travelers often miss because they don’t know about them. Walk with us and see why it’s called the new Berlin. Let us show you a different side of Europe’s oldest city, a side that locals-only know.

Experience alternative Athens by walking downtown through back alleys and into neighborhoods where bohemian shops, amazing street art, hidden courtyards, and indie cafés are located, attracting locals and travellers who like escaping the tourist traps.
