What to Expect

Where the starry night sky meets the vibrant streets, get ready to explore night-time Athens with the help of your expert guide. Your tour begins under the illuminated façade of the Greek Parliament building in Syntagma Square. From there, you will walk down Amalias Avenue and its unique character that gets extenuated under the night lights. Gaze on the temple of Olympian Zeus and be regaled with stories about emperors and the imposing Arch of Hadrian. Then, enjoy a stroll around the picture-perfect alleys of Plaka and be enchanted by the warmth of the small cafes and restaurants that fill the area, spilling onto the pathways.

Next stop, Monastiraki square; yet another check mark on your bucket list. Check out the street performers and appreciate Monastiraki’s stunning monuments: the imposing Hadrian’s Library and the distinctive Tzistarakis Mosque. As you walk down Adrianou Street, you will find the Stoa of Attalos and the Ancient Market. Learn about the myths and legends of the Areopagus, the area where ancient Athens held its supreme court.

Later, your tour will take you for a meander around the alleys of Psirri, where you will have the opportunity to view the center of Athens through a different lens. This area is home to neoclassical architecture, local bars, cafes, intimate restaurants, and of course, some of our favorite local hubs, which will complete the experience of Athens’ nightlife.

Your evening will come to an end and you will find yourself surrounded by friendly locals, delicious Greek small plates and traditional Greek liquors or wine. This tour has it all: sightseeing, city exploration, delicious food and exquisite drinks! What more could you ask for?
