athens-tours1

Starting our tour from Syntagma square, next to the parliament building and its famous guards, we head for the Jewish museum. We walk in the alleys of Plaka, passing the ancient Agora, where the ancient Synagogue once was,and heading for

the eternal Jewish neighborhoods, Monastiraki, Thissio and Psiri...


Among our walks and stops in the winding alleys of those charming neighbourhoods, you will see the houses and shops and feel the ambience of some of the oldest regions in the city of Athens. You will hear the history of the Jewish population in Athens and Greece and you will see old photographs of the places we visit, making it easy for you to visualize the everyday life of the Greek-Jews, on those very alleys. Of course the Synagogue couldn't be missing

 

The classical Athenian archeological sites are also included! The Roman monuments, the remains of the Ottoman Mosques, Byzantine churches and beautiful neoclassical constructions of the 19th century are also included. The Athens Jewish Walking Tour, really does include ALL of the Jewish sites of the city, plus the most important non Jewish sites. All in one morning!

 

Furthermore, we will stop for coffee under the Acropolis, where we will rest, getting the best view of the Parthenon. We will visit the old Jewish market, still named after the Jewish family who opened the first antique shop there. There is always the possibility of ending the tour with a nice Mediterranean kosher lunch of traditional Sephardic recipes, and some new ones by the Rabbi's wife.
