Full description
Starting from Koukaki area, at the Trekking Hellas Athens base, we will walk up Areopagus Hill to admire the view. We will then head south through Plaka district before we reach the areas of Monastiraki and Psyri. We’ve now reached the marketplace and the well-known Varvakios Market (meat market) a real memorable experience! Around the corner is the old Stock Exchange and Athens City Hall. We then enter a more diverse side of Athens, through Geraniou Street, a multicultural hidden neighborhood. The last part of our walk takes us around Omonia Square, an always buzzing part of Athens.

We very much enjoyed Theo's guided tour. It was greatly appreciated to walk through the markets and the warrens of shops while learning about their history and their future in this great city. Also most interesting was to visit several multi-generational artisanal shops and to speak with their proprietors. Theo was very knowledgeable about all aspects of which he spoke, as well as on topics that we asked about on the way. We also enjoyed our coffee stop at the end where, over a cool drink, we engaged Theo in more general discussions about the city past and present. This was our most enjoyable of the several walking tours we made in Athens, and highly recommend it to others.
