A time-capsuled gem lies in the shadow of Acropolis. Anafiotika is a scenic neighborhood which climbs up the Rock of Acropolis. It came to life after some construction workers from the island of Anafi built their houses there. This is why this area resembles a Greek island. The current residents keep the buildings as they used to be in an attempt to preserve an atmosphere from a past era. Anafiotika could be labeled as the most surprising area in Athens. It is not every day that you see an island background in the center of a capital. Anafiotika is worth your visit!

Unique Food Tour with Food Journalist!
This was a wonderful tour! Georgia is very knowledgeable and friendly and has organized a fun and informative tour. It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning in Athens, seeing it through the eyes of a local who knows this city.
1 Day Private Driver/Guide Experience
Chris was absolutely wonderful from the moment we first met him! He is friendly, charming, and outgoing! He explained what he had planned for us as soon as he arrived and picked us up from our hotel! After he had explained his plan he offered to let us change the planned trip if we had something else in mind. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful day getting to know Chris as he showed us some lovely spots along the coast line telling us stories and history of the sights we saw along the way. We worked our way towards and ended up at Cape Sounion where we were given time to explore the Temple of Poseidon at our leisure. The entire day was lovely and we would highly recommend Chris as a guide for anyone who wants to see parts of Greece around Athens and get a knowledgeable and local perspective along the way.
