Tour overview

Artisans & Markets Walk ~ Your Greek shopping therapy – Α walking tour to indulge in 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, allowing you to stroll and buy your local treasures.

Starting from the Trekking Hellas Athens base, at the Koukaki area, we will walk up Areopagus Hill to admire the view. We will then head south through the 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 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 hidden multicultural 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 in this area before ending our walk at the Omonia metro station!
