Visited Athens in October 16, 2020
Your Locals for this Walk
I was born in Athens and I have lived in the southern suburbs (Athens Riviera) for more than 40 years. The last five years I have been working to bring more tourists to my neighbourhood. Also, I collaborate with other citizens to make the archeological spots of our municipality known to others. I believe that Athens and the Athens Riviera can attract people with different interests. It is very important to me to show visitors the real (and rich in many ways), Attica and Athens.

Mayor of Athens
Born and raised in Athens I can never get enough of this inviting, intriguing, exciting city. I love Athens for its variety, its' contradictions and the moments that it offers - there's no way that one gets bored! The hidden places, the out of space and out of time locations, the secret paths of a city that combines modern and traditional elements in such a unique way!
Let's discover Athens together!
I didn't fully appreciate Athens until I lived abroad for a few years. Now I am back with an immense love for this vibrant city and the desire to share it. I ran out of friends willing to spend every weekend walking around the centre of Athens so I thought I should give this a try. A pretty accurate description of me would be a list of my current obsessions which are coffee, sourdough, cooking, cycling and tinkering.
If what you are looking for is the best souvlaki, best espresso shot or the best Indian place in town I am your best bet.
