Suggested Athens photo tour itineraries:
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE ANCIENTS
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. Capturing the grandeur of the Parthenon will be a moment to remember. Opposite the Acropolis, Philopappos Hill, taking its name from the spectacular Philopappos Monument erected in 116AD, awaits to be photographed.
As you walk through the vestiges of time, from ancient to modern times, through the area of Plaka, its whitewashed houses –Anafyotika- and reach Thiseio – named after the Temple of Hephaestus located in the ancient Agora you would have feasted on an ever-changing kaleidoscope of images.
Document the bustling and arty life in the neighbourhood of Psiri and the bohemian one of the nearby Keramikos. Psyri is a mixture of old and new points of interest side by side. Old fashioned artisans workshops, hidden alleys, counter culture and alternative spaces, street art, popular bars and traditional tavernas, coexist in harmony, creating a fascinating atmosphere full of surprises. Keramikos shares some of the same points excluding the volume and the fancy keeping its calm and bohemian character unscathed and a distance from the tourist hordes. Both areas offer a wide array of street photography opportunities and consist some of the most interesting faces of the non-classical Athens.
