Overview
It can be hard to navigate Athens’ curving streets and layers of history on your own. On this walking tour, learn about the city with a guide. Explore the old town of Plaka and the island architecture of Anafiotika, and view the Acropolis from Mars Hill. An included picnic with wine, while you look out on Athens from Philopappou Hill, means you can pack light for a hassle-free day.
