We were lucky to have a private food tour with Eleni, who was very knowledgeable about Athens and its foods. We tried everything from olives to cheeses and pies. Eleni also told us about the areas we were seeing and the local perspective on current events. It was an enjoyable tour, and we highly recommend it.

Athens can be difficult to navigate for newcomers. Athenian Tours does a great job of educating their guests on the history and layout of the market. We thoroughly enjoyed all of our food samples as well as interacting with the local vendors. Tassos, our tour guide, was very good!

Neoclassical Heart of Athens

The slightly sloping Syntagma Square (Plateia Syntagmatos = Constitution Square) is located in the heart of modern Athens. It is the central square of Athens and it was named after the Constitution that the first King of Greece Otto was obliged to grant, after a popular and military uprising on 3 September 1843. The eastern side of the square is higher than the western, and dominated by a set of marble steps leading to Amalias Avenue; beneath these lies the Syntagma metro station. Between the  green areas  planted with shade trees, in the center of the square there is a large mid-19th century water fountain.
