In this tour with Athens Walking Guide we search to trek the urban configuration of the new capital of the newly established Greek state, Athens. Travellers may enjoy the descriptions of the buildings that are connected with the first days of the modern state and also feel the daily life of Athens. Additionally our commentary covers the reign of the two Royal Greek families. 

A.W.G. meeting poing is going to be outside Syntagma Square next to the fountain and you will recognize us by the sign with the logo Athens Walking Guide.

The walk starts from the Old Palace (Greek Parliament), continues at the Cathedral of St. Dionysios and the Athenian Trilogy {(Academy of Athens, University of Athens and the National Library and then to Arsakeio Girls (Council of State)}. Then we_visit-the-Old National Printing House, the House Dekozi – Vouros (Museum of the City of Athens), the=Temple St. George Karytsi and we-close-our-tour-nearby the House of Chian banker Kontostavlos (Old House), which was also the residence of the royal couple for a few years.
