TOUR DESCRIPTION

Let the central neighborhood of Kolonaki take your breath away as it is one of the oldest quarters in Athens with a wide plethora of luxury boutiques, designer shops, hip cafés and restaurants. Merging with the areas of Syntagma and Lycabettus, the posh district of Kolonaki, with the edgy stores and galleries, proves an ideal match for its chic residents.

The afternoon will start in Syntagma Sq., where our tour leader meets you at 14:30 for a quick briefing, followed by a visit at one of the best high-end fashion designer boutiques of Athens. There you will discover how classical Greek architecture & design and folklore has influenced fashion to date.

Then, you’ll enjoy your Greek coffee and a snack/ sweet at a beautiful café-restaurant/concept store while the tour leader will share with you some local secrets and amazing stories about how to make the most of your stay in Athens. After this little break, it will be time to familiarize yourselves with the vibrant and dynamic art scene in Athens by visiting a pioneer Αrt Gallery, exhibiting works of contemporary artists from Greece and around the world.

The highlight of the tour will be an organic Beauty store experience where you will learn about its unique innovative products and a holistic way of living (optional: book a face, body or hair treatment). In the early evening, you will join an interactive, entertaining & educational session on the art of selecting, tasting & appreciating Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a trip to discovering the secret of the Greek Mediterranean Diet.

By that time, there are plenty of options that our tour leader can recommend for you, either to relax in the same neighbourhood as it features countless cocktail bars and restaurants, or explore nearby districts also full of life and exciting places to try for happy hour or dinner.
