Combines the natural beauty of Athens, and the monuments and sights of the city, the breathtaking views over the Saronic Gulf and the skyline of the city from the Hills. You will walk in a little neighborhood of Plaka called Anafiotika which is a tiny piece of Greek island village built on the foot step of Acropolis rock. Tour starts at Benaki museum where we see the presidential guards, we enter the National Gardens, then we go up to Anafiotika village, and we visit Arios Pagos rock. Then we end up on Philopapou Hill where we admire the best views of Athens and the monument of Philopapos on the top. We enjoy the views with a glass of Greek sparkling wine and a traditional picnic with all the famous Greek delicacies.
The historic importance of these hills and their natural beauty will surprise you. Their role at the first footsteps of Democracy and Christianity will be described by our guide as we walk the UNESCO awarded handmade walkway pedestrians on Philopapou Hill. The beauty of greek nature makes that tour one of our very best.
