A friendly, down-to-earth guy who enjoys meeting new people and experiencing new things. I’m in love with my city, and can't get enough of tasting its splendour as well as its diversity. Young at heart - although not a spring chicken any longer.

Hello everybody! I am Vanessa. Welcome to Athens! I love travelling, exploring, walking, meeting people, food, cooking, summer, beaches and snorkelling! For the purposes of our walk, I can take you to a couple of neighbourhoods in Athens that you might not discover on your own. I also love art, so we can pass by a couple of art galleries if you are interested.

Hi, there! I am 27 years old and I have lived in Athens since I was born. I speak English, French and Spanish, and I am a Swedish language beginner. I love long walks, cultural events and exploring downtown Athens. I am fascinated by the city's hills and its urban landscape. I also love old Athenian architecture and local history. I became an Athens Local to share with you as many of my favourite spots in the Greek capital as possible!
Tip: Getting to the top of either Lycabettus or Philopappou Hill is a must during your visit; the view is really worth it, and you get to see the small St George's church or Philopappos Monument.

I grew up in Athens and have also lived in California for 20 years. I have a background in Retail, Management and Sales, but prefer to have a coffee and chat about the history of Athens.

I like playing music and taking long-distance walks. I also love to dance lindy hop and jive. I believe that a big part of everyday life in Athens is in the suburbs. And I'd love to show them to everyone who wants to see them.
