On this tour you will follow the footsteps of everyday people and their cultures through the centuries.

You will see the tower of the winds, a weather vane, a sundial, and a hydraulic clock housed in an octagonal tower built by the astronomer Andronicus, the Roman Agora, the remains of Hadrian's Library built in 132 AD seen at a distance, and Fethiye Djami - Mosque of the conqueror, considered one of the oldest and finest Ottoman monuments in Athens.

Optional Tour 5:
Markets, Ruins and Ancient Athens

Duration: 2.5-3 hours

Decription:
Explore Athens from top to bottom. Wander through flea markets, window-shop for leather goods and handmade icons and explore the city's rich ancient past. See Agora where merchants bargained in Greek and Roman times, wander past the 17th and 18th century houses of Thisson and finish at the mighty Acropolis.

Meet your local guide at Ktozia Square, then head to the Mayor of Athens' neo-classical building on Athina Street, one of the busiest in Athens. Starting at 9 am when the city's shops and markets are bustling with Athenians, ready for a day of business just as they have done for the past 2,000 years. You will experience the spirit again of the Greek life with the same commerce of food that existed thousands of years before. Dive into the Athenian way of life as your guide takes you through the markets. Here you will find every Mediterranean fruit, vegetable, meat, cheese and fresh on offer. Filled with all these warm colours, tastes, and smells, the next stop is Monastiraki Square. The name of the square derives from the Greek word for monastery, in fact in the center of the square sits the Pantanassa monastery. Not far away is the 18th century Tzistarakis mosque, now a ceramics museum. The square is also home to the Adrian library, an archaic temple constructed in the Corinthian-style. Explore the square's flea market, mingle with merchants and see ancient monuments. Explore Ifaistou or Pandrossos Streets to discover shops selling all kind of specialties such as leather sandals, hand made icons, Greek music instruments and antiquities. The next stop is the ancient Agora, where merchants were trading in Greek and Roman times. Walk through the area to Thisson passing houses from the 17th and the 18th century along the way. Thission used to be a forgotten neighborhood of Athens but in the past 10 years it has been completely renovated, with many pedestrian streets, and restored houses. The final stop is the mighty Acropolis. Walking around the site learn about the history, and the myths, for each temple. See the Athina Nike, the Caryatides and the Parthenon, constructed in the Golden Age of Athens under Pericles. The adventure ends here where you are free to continue on your own personal exploration or the guide can give you advice on the best way to get back to your hotel.
