Full description
Enjoy an interactive city discovery experience across Athens’s Old City. You’ll solve riddles via a web app in your phone’s browser, with all the information you need for your adventure being received via email before the activity. Solving 10 riddles, your challenge starts inside the Syntagma Square Metro Station at the “Fragment of a Mosaic Floor”. Each riddle takes you from one hidden location to the next. You’ll unlock local recommendations and fun facts, as well as the history of the city. You'll discover spots in Athens’s Old City that most locals don’t even know, as you see popular sights from a different angle. Explore Athens’s iconic landmarks, stately buildings, famous characters, charming streets, and an enormous verdant garden where you’ll be treated to a bird symphony. Along the route, you’ll discover favorite local cafes and artisan shops as the game leads you past the city’s oldest distillery, where you can sample Greek spirits. Solve the 10 riddles and unlock short stories, as well as a tip to find some favorite rooftop haunts which provide fantastic panoramic views over the city. The highlights you will discover throughout the game include Mitropoleos Square, the National Gardens, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, and the picturesque 11th-century Byzantine Church of Saint Catherine.

It was a great way to explore the city. Had we had another day in Athens we would have done the second one offered. A great way to explore at your own pace and see some history.
