KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Athens is the historical capital of Europe. Its long history dates from the very first settlements in the Neolithic Age. During the 5th century B.C. ( the “Golden Age of Pericles”), which was the culmination of Athens’ fascinating history, the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Over the years, many conquerors occupied Athens and erected unique monuments resulting in a rare historical “palimpsest.” In 1834 the city became the capital of the modern Greek state, and in two centuries, it evolved into a modern metropolis. A large part of the city’s historic center has been converted into a 5 miles long pedestrian zone ( largest in Europe ). This pedestrian network connects the major archaeological sites (“Archaeological Park”), reconstructing ancient paths and landscapes.
Our tours are conducted in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

Beware of pickpockets
Metro pickpockets are more fierce and bold these days, and you really need to keep an eye on your belonging when journeying on the metro. The same can be said when sitting on a terrace at busy cafes or squares, particularly if you have a habit of leaving your phone on the table while having coffee or lunch.
