TOUR ITINERARY

Day One
3 hours

Acropolis: Step back in time as you ascend to the summit of this UNESCO World Heritage site, where the Parthenon, a symbol of ancient Greece’s architectural prowess, awaits. Marvel at the intricate marble carvings and learn about the myths and legends that shroud this ancient citadel.

Philopappos Hill: From the Acropolis, we will venture to Philopappos Hill, offering panoramic views of the city below. Named after the monument dedicated to Gaius Julius Antiochus Epiphanes Philopappos, a prince of the Kingdom of Commagene, this hill provides a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

Evening of the same day:
3 hours

Zappeion Building: Admire the neoclassical elegance of the Zappeion, a stunning structure nestled within the National Gardens of Athens. Built in the late 19th century, it has served as a venue for numerous historic events, including the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.

Plaka Area: Lose yourself in the labyrinthine streets of Plaka, Athens’ oldest neighborhood, where Byzantine, Ottoman, and Neoclassical influences converge. With its charming cafes, vibrant tavernas, and quaint boutiques, Plaka is a photographer’s paradise.

Anafiotika Neighborhood: Transport yourself to the Greek islands as you wander through the enchanting alleyways of Anafiotika.
An island-look-alike settlement built by settlers from the island of Anafi in the 19th century, this picturesque neighbourhood offers a glimpse into traditional Cycladic architecture.

Mars Hill (Areopagus): Conclude your journey atop Mars Hill, where ancient Athenian philosophers once gathered to discuss ideas and debate philosophy. With commanding views of the Acropolis and the city below, it’s the perfect spot to reflect on the timeless legacy of Athens.

Day Two 
3 hours

Ancient Greek and Roman Agora: Embark on a journey through time as you explore the ancient agora, the bustling heart of ancient Athens. From the stately ruins of the Stoa of Attalos to the iconic Temple of Hephaestus, each stone whispers tales of commerce, politics, and daily life in antiquity. The ancient agora was not only a marketplace but also served as the center of Athenian democracy, where citizens gathered to debate and vote on matters of state.

Vasilis truly loves and puts his being into what he does, and this shows in the end result. I genuinely arrived to our tour with a bad mood and left feeling relaxed, present & with exactly the photos I didn't know I was looking for! The tour felt like chilling with a friend I've known forever and the photos turned out excellent!!!

First of all, i was very hesitant to hire a photographer initially, i always believed i could take my own photos or anyone could do it. But with Vasilis, he showed me the true art of photography, he took his time and i trusted him completely, and im glad i did ! He put his heart and brain into each photo and that really made it an unbelievable experience, he loves what he does and it really shows his passion. Every angle was really and carefully thought. He told me his name means king, he is a true king of photography. He is so good that he makes you consider modeling ! Truly loved my time today and I am really glad i met him as a person . I met him as a photographer and now I know him as a friend. Thank you Aziz from Kuwait

The Best Photo Tour in Athens Vasilis was a patient, knowledgeable instructor who is passionate about photography. This is infectious and has inspired me to take my photography to the next level of creativity. This was a once in a lifetime experience I will never forget . I was pushed out of my comfort level and lived every minute of this experience. Definitely book a tour with Vasilis if you are looking to be inspired!

Superb photo guide I had a superb tour with the very knowledgable Vasilis. His chat, sense of humour, knowledge of the city, and professional enthusiasm for photography (and showing off the best of his city) are second to none. He immediately put me at my ease and once l began to show him some of my photos he was full of ideas and subtle coaching suggestions of better places to stand, or angles to use, or how to pick just the right moment to take my next photo. Athens is one of those places that seems to be on every traveller's wish list - it makes sense to spend that ambition wisely by being with a guide as pleasant and expert as Vasilis. I think I will return to the Athens area just for another photo walk (maybe the riviera?) - I enjoyed it that much.

An amazing experience and my best photographs ever! I am an Associate Professor of Ancient Greek Art History and Archaeology, and I asked Vasilis to take photographs of me around Athens that I could use both personally and professionally. He was wonderful to work with many terrific ideas about different locations. I also really appreciated how responsive he was to my needs and interests and how quickly he put me at ease in front of the camera. I was absolutely thrilled with the gorgeous shots Vasilis took, and I was enormously impressed with how quickly he sent them to me. I could not imagine a more positive experience, and I really appreciated the wide variety of striking images he created. A photo walk with Vasilis is a fantastic way to create an unforgettable experience in Athens that you can treasure forever!
