Stroll around the neighbourhood where you’re staying in Athens and find out what lies within its back-streets and squares. Follow the locals and experience the area just like an Athenian.



Potential starting points are the Info point kiosk at Syntagma, or a subway station near the neighbourhood. Locals are non-paid savvy Athenians providing their personal opinions and not professional tour guides. Masks are mandatory for the duration of the walk.



We got to explore Pagkrati and fell for its contemporary urban charm, thanks to this program!

Hey there! I consider myself very spontaneous, in a sense that I love to create, reinvent and experiment with new things. I studied and enjoyed engineering and I was one of the three women in Greece in my specialty. But life has a way of changing things so I found my true passion and that is to connect with people. It's amazing how sharing thoughts and ideas, interests or experiences can make such incredible bonds all over the world. I am a collection of the things that have inspired me through my life and those things include my city. Ι believe myself to be a very chilled and open-minded person. I love Athens because it’s the city where I was born and raised and where you can appreciate a contrast of diversity. I like to find the most authentic places of a city. Those places that make you connect with the people and want to come back to them. The Acropolis, temples and museums are impressive, but get to know the way real, everyday Athenians live and hang out.

I have travelled a lot and lived abroad, so I am aware that visiting a foreign town is all about its local vibes, hidden in the everyday street life. I am not the type to take you to museums or art exhibitions. But I can get you under the skin of an Athenian stroller who loves to go out and feel the atmosphere of the city lights. Be sure that we will visit neighbourhoods and spots that are not written about in your guides ;-)!
