Sightseeing spots in Athens

Sightseeing is one of the elements that makes a trip gain some perspective. A trip is supposed to entertain, relax but also broaden the visitor's mental and image horizons. Therefore, sightseeing in should be on the top of your things to do in Athens list. What is more, sightseeing combines your sensory input on the monuments with your personal experience. As a result, you will create once-in-a-lifetime memories.

Apart from the obvious choices such as Acropolis, sightseeing in Athens includes miscellaneous options. While the heart of the city is drawing all the spotlights, Athens outskirts are also worth your attention. The mountain of Ymittos can be a great place to take artistic pictures while you enjoy some fresh air and a wonderful view over the city.

But, the best of Athens' sightseeing is yet to come! Beauty can be found in the most unlikely places. Thankfully, Athens has a lot of hidden spots that wait for visitors to explore them. A local host can help you locate such beauty all over town. You can even capture such images of beauty with your camera.

You can even take the Athens' sightseeing experience one step further. Along with a local host/driver, you can circulate all around the city in search of the latent and mysterious aspects of the city. Having a local who can drive by your side increases the potential of sightseeing in Athens. For example, you can make pit stops to take pictures of lovely seaside sunsets and you can personalize your tour based on your preferences.

The list of monuments and attractions for sightseeing in Athens is never-ending. Therefore, you should make your choice count by choosing a local host to guide you through the best of the best.

Colors & Myths of Athens: Family Friendly Tour

We loved Vicky! We didn't bring kids for her tour and we all loved it (4, 30yr olds).
She is full of energy and info. Loved her! Would do another tour with her again!

Fresh Seafood Home Dinner with Panoramic View

I booked this experience as a surprise for my partner’s birthday. And it was an amazing surprise for both of us! The hosts were charming and welcoming, they made us feel like we were visiting old friends. Michail is an outstanding chef. We were served some lovely traditional starters, delicious fresh seafood, beautifully flavoursome pork and a homemade cake to die for. We had a lovely evening and our only regret was that we didn’t book more than just one night.
I thoroughly recommend Michail as a personal chef if you really want to experience an unforgettable evening filled with authentic Greek food and hospitality.
