Què farem?

We walk through Athens of the 19th Century, seeing the early monuments of the city as a capital, touching upon the source of inspiration, namely, the classical ancient period.
During the 19th Century, Athens, the new capital of the Modern Greek state, was adorned with several new buildings inspired by its distant past. This inspiration remained strong until the beginning of the 20th Century.
Some of the monuments that our walk passes by are: The world famous Athenian Trilogy, Neobyzantine buildings, the Troy Mansion and the listed as a landscape monument National Garden of Athens. The preserved original view place, close to the 19th Century edge of the city, where the last wolf attack occurred. The stadium where the first modern Olympic Games took place and the hill that the flat stone pulpit, known as “vema”, where all the great personalities of the Golden Age of Athens spoke, is still preserved.
This is a real Athenian walk, from the 19th Century to the antiquity, passing by important landmarks and also hidden places within the busy capital, finishing at the hills opposite the Acropolis, the place where it all began. A walk back in time!
We have adopted extra precautions, so as to stay safe. We are touring only in small groups, we visit only open-air spaces, and there is no physical contact during our tour. Medical masks and antiseptic liquid are available.
Other things to note
The tour does not include transfer to meeting point, entrance fees, transfer from the finish point, anything not mentioned. No archaeological sites visits. The distance is approximately 8 klm.

Hi, I am Babis and I am an author and a photographer and I deal with the defensive, traditional and neoclassical architecture and the environment over than 20 years. I was born and I live in Athens and it is my great pleasure to introduce my city to visitors. I have written three books, the first one is a study for the Fortified Residences in the Peloponnese 15th- 19th century, the second is for lake Kerkini, one of the most important wetlands in Europe, and the third is “Monasteries in Greece, 15 centuries of Art and Architecture”, as well as many articles about architecture and travelling.

An excellent friendly guide with an enormous wealth of knowledge. Babis brought a deep insight into the people and culture of this amazing city. He spoke about ancient classical Greece, Byzantium and Ottoman times in great detail. We questioned him endlessly about politics, architecture, wars, religion and species of birds and vegetation. This experience went way beyond our expectations and is “must” for people who want to dive into the history and culture of the city. Thank you Babis for the wonderful tour and joyous day

Babis gave a excellent tour. We particularly enjoyed that he gave us time to think and take on the scenery without constant talking. It felt very relaxed.

Babis is great and he gave us a excellent experience of Athen. The whole trip include the famous tourist place such as important building at university street, most important thing is that he took us to some very local places to know the difference and variety of this city. Highly recommend.

That was our first day in Athens, after this tour I felt confident to deal with the city and did not even need to take other tours for the rest of the week.

Awesome tour! Babis is extremely knowledgeable about his native city and his pride shows :) We loved he took us to place we would have missed had we wondered by ourselves. I would recommend you do this tour before you start visiting monuments and historic places so you have a better understanding of how they came to be. The tour also revolved around architecture and the different styles and movements you can find around the city. It was well-presented and very interesting and informative. Never felt rushed, all the contrary, Babis even showed us places that were not part of the original tour he had planned. He answered all questions and since it was just us two it felt like we were just visiting with a friend. So, I would most definitely book a tour with him again as a guide!

I spent 5 days in Greece, and this exploration was the highlight of my experience. It was more than just looking at different structures and seeing what they were. It really was a journey back in time. He provided amazing depth behind the many marvels of this great city with knowledge that was both relative to things I learned in school, as well as tales that you can't find in a basic textbook. I felt so privileged to learn so much about a city in a well-planned navigation that told a story that I would not be able to uncover on my own, or through any basic tour for that matter. This made me appreciate where I was at so much more! Thanks again, Babis!!
