What you can expect

OPTION A, Lycabettus hill (2hr): First, we are going to slowly climb Lycabettus hill (600m/60m height difference, or optionally take the funicular half way for €7), and enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the city from the courtyard of the whitewashed St. George church.
Coming down the hill, we will pass by Dexameni square, to end up on the bustling Kolonaki square.

OPTION B, Kolonaki (2hr): We are going to explore the area around the posh Kolonaki square, the meeting point of the Athenian upper class, including the shopping Tsakalof and Skoufa streets, maybe visiting some galleries or Greek haute couture designers along the way.
We will then walk to the main Panepistimou street, to admire the magnificent neoclassical buildings, taking photos on their iconic stairs, passing by commercial arcades, to end up on Valaoritou and Voukourestiou, the most upmarket shopping street of Athens, optionally visiting the Numismatic Museum and enjoying its beautiful garden cafe.

I have been born and raised in Athens, explored every nook and cranny of Greece, already travelled half around the globe, and looking to finish the job as soon as possible (within the next 20 years or so!).
It was the best life changing decision a few years back to quit my job as a marketing and business consultant, shifting my focus from organising businesses to organising trips. I now call myself a very happy Trip Designer, creating unique experiences and custom itineraries both for myself and other fellow travellers, whether in Greece or anywhere else around the world. I am also managing a small but quite active international travelling community, and have a weekly travel-themed radio show.
I love playing tourist in my home town, and I am always eager to meet new people and show the hidden wonders of Athens, Attica, and beyond!"
