Full description

Follow your guide through Plaka’s alleys to discover its treasures one by one. See the Roman Forum, the Tower of the Winds, the Metresse, Hadrian’s Library and Tzistarakis Mosque. Continue to Monastiraki Square and to the busy and colorful Flea Market, and Avyssinias square with the antique dealers.  At the Ancient Agora, see where ancient Greeks used to trade and gather to discuss city matters, creating the concept of democracy.
