Finishing up our tour, we will wander around the alleys of Psirri to discover the alternate colour and vibrancy of the area, home to neoclassical houses, local cafes, bars and small restaurants – plus our favourite local haunts that shape Athens nightlife experience! The ending of our night tour will find you among friendly locals in a convivial atmosphere, drinking traditional Greek liquors or wine, and savouring authentic Greek ‘mezedes’ dinner.

Some of the spots you are going to visit:

Plaka area

Plaka is the oldest neighbourhood surviving in the city of Athens. Stretching down the northern slopes of the Acropolis, the space it occupies was continuously inhabited since prehistoric times. Nowadays, the visitor has the chance to walk around the narrow medieval alleys, marvel at the dominant Athenian neoclassical architecture, discover some picturesque thousand-year-old Byzantine churches and feel the vibe of the centuries of history in every corner. Do not miss your chance to stroll around the jewel of Athens just under the magnificent rock of the Acropolis!

Reviews

  • We had fun and we learn some more about the city, from different points of view. The guide was funny, enthusiastic and well prepared. The food was typical but not greek- "main stream". It is a wonderful choice!
