This is a must tour to experience Athens and it's locals. Gina met us at Syntagma Square and led us on an awesome adventure through Athens. The night views of the Acropolis and the Ancient River, amongst other site were amazing. Gina customized the tour to include what we wanted to experience. We experienced the sites from far but the...

We booked this tour the first night we arrived in Athens. We met Maeva in the square and she walked us to some fantastic places! We went back to most of them on our own before we left Athens. The first stop is the cutest little restaurant with great Tsipouro. We went back every night for more. Maeva was so... More

I met with Nikoleta, the tour guide. Went to market, hence raw produce (cows/lamb/pig/fish), fun and interesting characters. Saw traditional coffee heated in sand....Then went on to browse herb shops, cheese, etc, last of all I got to taste traditional Greek food, street food and desserts. Nutella lukamades to die for. Nikoleta was great, informative and fun.

My wife and I went on the Twilight Tour with Maeva, and could not have been happier with our experience. Maeva was a terrific tour guide, and you could tell that she really loves her city. Like the other two Urban Adventures tours that we've booked in other cities, this one also took us to places we likely would not... More

Spent the day with Nikoleta exploring laneways, markets and streets of Athens. It was a full day tour with plenty of stops. Nikoleta went out of her way to accommodate my preferences and was a fun companion. If you are travelling alone Urban Adventures is a great company with whom to spend some time exploring Athens.

Had the 'best' tour with Nikoleta yesterday! She was informative and really fun to tour with! The food and coffee was soo good and she really discussed the Athens and Greek culture! I cannot recommend this tour enough as I have been travelling Europe for months and have had so many great tours but this one was the best!

We only had 3 days in Athens and this tour was the highlight of our 12 day vacation through Europe. This tour really gives you a feeling of true Greek culture.

Staying in Pangrati

Neighbourhood Profile
Pangrati
The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church. Among the standard four- to six-story apartment blocks that typify Athens, Pangrati also boasts some genuinely authentic tavernas and the odd trendy bar.
