Photo Tour Itinerary
A wondrous photo tour walk around the Acropolis, Plaka, Thiseio, and Dionysiou Areopagitou street. All these areas intertwine and produce a magnificent picture of the ancient Athenian past waiting to be captured by your lenses.
As you walk the pedestrianised Dionysiou Areopagitou street admiring the houses and passing the ancient Herod Atticus amphitheatre, the Acropolis stands majestically above you watching patiently. The opposite to Acropolis, Philopappos Hill, gives some spectacular views to the grandeur of the Parthenon to be captured!
As you walk through the vestiges of time, from ancient to modern times, through the area of Plaka, its whitewashed houses –Anafyotika– and reach Thisseio – named after the Temple of Hephaestus located in the ancient Agora you would have feasted on an ever-changing kaleidoscope of images.
