Rick Steves Athens Walking Tour

 

May 6, 2016

Rick Steves walking tour of Athens takes you from Syntagma square to Monastiraki square. A great introduction to the city that can be broken up in chunks if you don’t have enough time to do the whole tour at once. If you are a photography enthusiast or like to linger, from beginning to end the tour could easily take more than the two hour suggested length.

The Rick Steves free app and audio tour can be found here.

Some of the highlights include:
