Τι θα κάνετε

We walk in Plaka, the oldest neighborhood in the world and in the historical center of Athens, meeting the multicultural past of the city. Actually, we walk in an open-air museum, in which the exhibits that we can find create an unbelievable variety of monuments, dated in several centuries. Medieval Byzantine Churches built in the 11th century, old mansions like the oldest surviving residence in the city, Ottoman mosques dated in the 17th century, a small Aegean island settlement inside the old neighborhood, secret colorful corners and ancient streets are some of our points of interest amongst others. During our walk we will learn about the topography of the historical center and its past, sometimes using old drawings, as well as we can have short photo workshops on the spot, for picturesque images on our mobile’s or camera’s sensors. The tour passes by the trendiest sites in the area for coffee and finger food for the locals, where after the tour you can have some relaxing moments and feel the beat of the city. We have adopted extra precautions, so as to stay safe. We are touring only in small groups, we visit only open-air spaces, and there is no physical contact during our tour. Medical masks and antiseptic liquid are available.
Other things to note
The tour does not include transfer to meeting point, entrance fees in museums, transfer from the finish point and anything not mentioned. No archaeological sites visits.

Hi, I am Babis and I am an author and a photographer and I deal with the defensive, traditional and neoclassical architecture and the environment for over 20 years. I was born and I live in Athens and it’s my great pleasure to introduce my city to visitors. I have written three books, the first one is a study for the Fortified Residences in the Peloponnese 15th- 19th century, the second is for lake Kerkini, one of the most important wetlands in Europe, and the third is “Monasteries in Greece, 15 centuries of Art and Architecture”, as well as many articles about architecture and travelling.

Babis explains the multicultural past by starting from architectonic details of historic churches , houses and streets. It is very inspiring and informative to walk with him through the old little streets of Plaka and its surroundings. I would not want to miss out this experience.

Babis is a great guide. I especially like the way he explains the historical background and architectural styles of the places in the tour. I saw amazing ruins, churches, mansions and neighborhoods from different periods and understood the many different layers of the city. I had a wonderful time!

We enjoyed a wonderful day with Babis. He introduced us into the mysteries of the byzantine past of Athens, especially its distinctive churches. He brought Athens in Byzantine times to life, showing us many hidden places and answering patiently all our questions - and we always have many. We would highly recommend spending time with Babis on that special tour.
