Continue to Mars Hill or “Areopagus” as it is called in Greek; where your guide will offer you an explanation about the historical, mythological and religious importance of the location.

Right after, you will enter the most unique part of the city, the Anafiotika and Plaka areas, and will discover with your knowledgeable local guide, its tranquil, picturesque and mystic hidden corners. Stroll around the little alleys and admire the authentic cubic houses with bright painted shutters and beautifully carved wooden doors, a typical Cycladic architecture! Also, see and take beautiful pictures of tiny little chapels. 

Connect the dots between “yesterday” and “today” by letting your guide unveil unknown parts of history and significant details on historical buildings, beautiful old chapels and numerous monuments, such as the Ancient Agora, the Roman Forum and the tower of the winds. Create memories that will stay with you forever and…always have your camera ready!

This is where your guide will introduce you to the culinary habits of the Athenians while you will sample some of the local delicacies.

 

Food Tasting

You will have the opportunity to taste some of the most typical and traditional Greek foods, such as savory and sweet pies, souvlaki, Greek coffee escorted by a piece of Greek traditional dessert (either Greek ‘loukoumi’, sponge cake, spoon dessert, etc.), and Greek donuts (called “loukoumades”).
