I was born in Athens aside with 21st century. I am a student of Middle East studies department (at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens) .My family is successfully hosting Airbnb guests on our property for several years. The centre of Athens is my Big Home, I love it and I love to share my knowledge,that I gained through the years of exploring every corner of it. I love studying ancient Greek and Greek history, as well as recapitulating old, rare and latest books and documents. I would be happy if I could make you feel Athens at home, remember your trip here and make you dream about coming back.
The tour will be hosted in the heart of Athens, starting from the business center heading towards the industrial-club center and finally exploring the alluring mysteries of Athens.
The experience will involve a lot of walking but this way we will cover a big part of Athenian cultural and urban history. Hope you will enjoy it !
