Then, a bit further we meet the Ancient Theatre (Odeon) of Herodes Atticus and on our left we continue our walk with a station in Philopappos Hill, Pnyx and the great (romantic) view of both

On the slopes of Filoppapos Hill we follow the path to a Warren of caves room into bedrock. The archaeological excavations just indirectly connect this site with the person of Socrates. Some said to have been the place Socrates was imprisoned in before his trial.

We stay a little bit more to the base of Philopappos Hill  to view one more important monument from the Byzantine era (9th century). Saint Dimitrius Loumbardiaris is a small, vaulted, single aisle basilica including columns in the yard of the church entrance.

We continue our ride tour to Thissio and on the first alley we turn left to go up to the Hill of Nymphs and meet the National Observatory of Athens. The neoclassical building of NOA was created in 1846 and designed by the architect Theophilos Hansen.

We stop to enjoy the panoramic view of Athens and descend to Apostolou Pavlov Street. At the height of Thission Summer Cinema we cross the road that stars on our right and we follow the path between the Acropolis Hill which ends up in the house of  Ioannis Kolletis, the First Prime Minister of Greece. This house is one of the nicest neoclassical building in Plaka.

From the Polygnotou Street we continue to the Roman Agory of Athens. after saying a few infos about the archaeological site and the monuments near the Agora as we pass around it, we continue to the neighbourhood of Traditional Plaka to see the houses and other famous sports at Lysiou Street. After 5 minutes we meet the Choragic Monument  of Lysicrates, a wealthy patron of musical performances in the Theater of Dionysus, to commemorate the prize in the contest of the City Dionysis.

We end our tour by continuing straight at the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Then you can walk by your own to the National Garden of Athens and discover more about the Zappeion Mansion or the natural heritage of the Garden.

This was an awesome experience! We LOVED IT, would highly recommend! We enjoyed going past all the attractions, it was too hot to walk and we wouldn’t have got to see everything we did especially the secret location if we didn’t do this tour!! We only had the day as we were visiting from a cruise ship and this tour was the perfect amount of time, our guides were amazing thanks Mike and Theodore, we even went to some of their local recommendations after !!!!!
