Athens has a long history of LGBTQ+ representation. Today our inclusive, diverse city is perfect for a romantic getaway, but also ideal for a single’s night out.



Potential starting points are the Info point kiosk at Syntagma or Keramikos subway station. Locals are non-paid savvy Athenians providing their personal opinions and not professional tour guides.



There is something wonderful to be said for bypassing the all too common hop on hop off tourist experience and having a one on one ramble through the city with an individual that is unscripted and wholly authentic; instructive, illuminating, ingenious!

Our walk and host, Spyridon, both amazing. Interesting history and modern view of the city. LGBTQ+ focus really helps visitors learn about the community. Would highly recommend. Thank you Spyridon!

Great walk. We learned the area and also the cultural of LGBT here in Athens. The walk is more than fruitful, highly recommend to everyone even you are not in the LGBT community! Since you will get to see also bars, restaurants, locations that are suitable for everyone.

This two-hour tour began with the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Syntagma Square, with a walk through the National Gardens, past the Numismatic Museum and Garden, the Academy of Arts and Sciences, through the neighborhoods of Monastiraki, Psiri and Gazi. It was definitely a five-star experience. Thank you to This Is Athens for making this program possible.

Chemist, PM, MUA, creative thinker and dedicated reader. I was born and raised in Athens, left for 6 years to study in Cyprus and came back. I live in Zografou. Even though I have spent most of my life in Athens, I realise every day that there many amazing places that I have never visited, so I always try to explore this city - my city - and learn new places and things. I love walking around town, taking the train and exploring the areas around the train stations. I love exploring new street food places and tasting local and international dishes!
