Það sem verður gert

Following paths only locals know, we'll trace the footsteps of famous philosophers and politicians as I'll take you through some of the most picturesque areas around the ancient heart of the city. After about 2 hrs we'll conveniently end at Monastiraki square, that’s full of places to eat, shop etc.

We'll discuss how the creators of democracy strove everyday to improve this political system and how we can copy some clever hacks they introduced. What's incredible is that we'll actually be standing and discussing at the exact same places the ancient Athenians were gathering to discuss and argue themselves! Based on my personal academic research, I'll point out hidden details you won't find in any tour books.

Keep in mind this is NOT a long sightseeing walking tour, so if it's your first day in Athens, it's good to join another walking tour of the city, as a general introduction to Athens. My experience is actually a walking seminar that focuses mostly on delving a bit deeper into history, politics and the important lessons we can learn by discussing and sharing our ideas , opinions and facts!
Other things to note
Certain parts of this walk require an easy hiking uphill and include a few steps too. So if you're using a wheelchair please contact me in advance so we can adjust the route to your convenience

Yes, we can. Follow me to where everything started.

Greetings! I'm George, I was born in Athens and I've studied Ancient History/Archaeology both in Britain and in Greece. For more than a decade now, I've been organizing and leading tours. As a professional historian I've worked with universities and schools from all over the world.

I specialize in the birth of democracy, how those ancient ideas were revived by the American Founding Fathers and the practical solutions that all modern republics can implement today.

Staðsetning

We'll meet at Thissio which is very close to the Ancient Agora and the Flea Market and just a minute away from the metro station. Soon we'll be heading away from tourist areas, towards the hill of the Observatory and we'll end later at the busy square of Monastiraki, next to another metro station.

I got this experiance for my brother and his friends - they absolutely loved it and came back full of interesting facts. Definitely improved their insight into the city. They said George was really good fun and very intelligent! Thank you.

George gave a super engaging tour of Athens key historic points and offered a wealth of knowledge on how democracy was formed here and how it provided the basis for so much of European life since. Really enjoyed and highly recommend

Marvellous tour! I learned a lot and was shown important spots by George. You could tell that he is very passionate about the origins of democracy and politics and he is able to draw you in. We led some really interesting discussions. I am so happy I did the tour.

George shared his passion for thought and debate with real clarity. He drew interesting and thought provoking links between the ancient world and modern Europe. The ruins of Athens were brought alive.

George was such an incredible storyteller. I felt like I was walking back in time with him. Not only was he engaging and passionate, but he really had in depth knowledge on the history of Athens, both culturally and politically. He changed my perspective of democracy.
