Put on your sneakers and get ready for a different Athens walking tour, full of emotions and memorable images.

You’re going to meet your local expert at the Panepistimio metro station. This is where the Neoclassical Turns begins! First of all, you will explore the neoclassical trilogy of Athens, which includes the National Library, the University of Athens and the Academy. These three buildings are also known as the “temples of knowledge”.

After having learned about the renowned architects and the history behind them, you will cross one of the most vivid avenues of the city. You will have the chance to get lost inside the crowd for a bit, before reaching the Syntagma Square, where the heart of the city beats.

In front of the building of the Greek Parliament you will learn the history behind the monument of the Unknown Soldier and you will admire the changing of the guards, the so called Evzones. This is a unique spectacle that moves every Greek no matter how many times he has watched it.

Now it’s time to explore the magnificent National Gardens, where the first Kings of Athens used to take their walks. Despite being located downtown, the Gardens provide you a shelter from the city roar, so get ready for an unforgettable walk in nature! Following a beautiful route, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the sun and the lush vegetation, to admire sea turtles, parrots, geese and many more animals and listen to the most beautiful stories about the Greek capital.

Leaving the gardens behind, you’re back into the city route. The next station is the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first Modern Olympic Games were held back in the 1896. You will admire the imposing monument and learn about a famous Greek runner who triumphed in the first Marathon.

After having walked in front of the impressive Zappeion, your local expert will take you to the Arch of Hadrian and the temple of Olympian Zeus, where you will discover the history behind these two magisterial monuments.
