Tour Itinerary

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. 

The walk starts from the Old Palace (Greek Parliament), continues to the National Gardens and the Presidential Palace, our Royal Palace in Athens. According to your interest as a private tailor made tour is the choice of two different walks. One that includes the Cathedral of St. Dionysios and the Athenian Trilogy {(Academy of Athens, University of Athens and the National Library and then Arsakeio Girls School (Council of State)}, the Old National Printing House, the House Dekozi Vouros (Museum of the City of Athens), the church of Saint George Karytsi and the house of Chian banker Kontostavlos (Old House), which was also the residence of the royal couple for a few years. The second proposed itinerary includes the Panathenaic Stadium, Zappeion Mansion and Plaka area

During the walk we may have the opportunity to learn the importance of the architectural features of buildings, the difficulties (financial, policies, techniques) that had to be overcome to carry out the project, the arguments, objections and delays that accompanied the construction of buildings and to hear stories about people with their lives and their work marked the buildings of our first Royal Bavarian KingOtto. OfcoursewemakeconnectionswithourlastRoyalfamilywhichlives nowadays abroad.
