About 🔎

Hello everyone! I am Maria and I am a licensed tourist guide in Athens. Today, with this audio tour we will be making a circle around the foot of the Acropolis Hill so you explore and discover the most historical part of Athens. As we move around the Acropolis area, I will share with you all of its' fascinating facts, myths, stories and secrets. You will also be able to take amazing photos, shop, mingle with the locals, and fall in love with my city! Most of the walk is at ground level and fits all ages. It will take you approximately two and a half hours to complete it depending on your pace and the breaks you make.
