What You'll Do
  • Discover the bohemian side to Athens at funky workshops and cool cafés
  • Get the insider scoop and experience Athens like a local, not a tourist
  • Learn about one of the biggest street art scenes in the world
  • Venture into hidden alleyways and back lanes
  • Sip authentic Greek coffee and local spirits

Overview
Get off the usual tourist trail on a 3.5-hour walking tour of Athens, and see sights known only to locals. Discover the alternative side to the contemporary city at bohemian shops and indie cafés. Marvel at street art and secret courtyards.
What to Expect
Enjoy an alternative tour of Athens and go beyond the usual tourist spots. Say goodbye to the Parthenon and Caryatids, and hear about the city in the present day. Stroll beyond the traditional guidebook sites, visit lesser known neighborhoods favored by locals, and discover secret corners that aren’t found online.

Start by sipping a traditional Greek coffee in a secret garden in the center of the city at a place known only to locals. Stand in awe in front of unique monuments, and hear the myths that surround these legendary buildings. Learn about kings and queens, heroes and outlaws, and a hidden Athens beneath your feet.

Stroll into back lanes and past bohemian workshops. See what life is like for middle class Athenians. Check out the surprisingly bustling art scene in the city streets. The street art scene in Athens is one of the biggest in the world, and even the word "graffiti" comes from the Greek word grafi ("written").

Compare the new with the old on streets that connect (or divide) the past and present. Think ancient tombs and factory chimneys, art centers, and hidden courtyards. Along the way, get a literal taste for Athenian life with tastings of sweet delights and sips of local spirits.
