Artisans & Markets Walk Your Greek shopping therapy is a walking tour to indulge into the local open markets and experience local crafts and artisans. Our walk will take you through the most vibrant parts of the city and everyday life, giving you the opportunity to stroll and buy your local treasures.
Starting from Koukaki area, at the Trekking Hellas Athens base, we will walk up Areopagus Hill to admire the view. We will then head south through Plaka district before we reach the areas of Monastiraki and Psyri. We’ve now reached the marketplace and the well-known Varvakios Market (meat market) a real memorable experience!
Around the corner is the old Stock Exchange and Athens City Hall. We then enter a more diverse side of Athens, through Geraniou Street, a multicultural hidden neighborhood.
The last part of our walk takes us around Omonia Square, an always buzzing part of Athens.
We get to taste the street food located in this area before ending our walk at Omonia metro station!
