Your private guide: Gina
I am Gina. I am an Athenean, a true local having lived here ever since 1989.
I speak fluently English and Italian, having lived in both countries for considerable amounts of time.
I have a degree in music and I work as an English teacher. I love learning new things about different cultures and interacting with people, which is why I think WithLocals is a great project and I would love to participate.
One of my passions is history and visiting ancient sites. There are plenty of magnificent landscapes in Athens, linked with their extraordinary stories and bursting with energy. I invite you to explore these timeless places with me.
Athens is not a relic, it is a vibrant modern city which has a lot to offer. I can take you on a tour around the modern culture of Athens. We will visit modern zones of the city that are buzzing with youth and energy! You will have the chance to see cafes, restaurants and bars that are special....
If you are not yet familiar with Greek food, you are up for a great surprise! Succulent, aromatic dishes with plane traditional ingredients will leave you wanting more! I can take you on a tour around the modern Market of Athens. A great place that reminds you of old time. Little shops selling herbs, spices and traditional ingredients so that you can replicate the flavours you were introduced to in Greece.
