What you can expect

Join me for this unique tour and learn all about the concept of democracy in its original birthplace. In case you don't already know it, "Democracy" is a Greek word. This internationally used and well-known concept was born and flourished just here in my city, Athens, 2500 years ago.

Imagine wandering through the sites of ancient Athens where simple Athenians used to gather, discuss and vote. Imagine standing right at the spots where ancient orators and politicians used to debate and express their views in front of the citizens of this glorious city.

Likewise, end this special tour in the central square of Athens where modern democracy flourished from the 19th century to the present day.

This is a perfect opportunity for you so don't miss it!
