Discover Athens with a local

I’m Clément, born and raised in France and I relocated to Athens in 2018. This was the achievement of a long dream to call Athens home since my five years-old when I came to Greece for the first time.

Passionate by the local way of life and the ambiance of Athens, I will share with you fascinating stories and knowledge about the city.

Experience a city with a local is the best way to understand a culture and the way of life of the local people.

Explore different areas of Athens with a local

The duration of a tailor-made urban walk of Athens with a local is between three hours and a full day.

With a three hours route, you can get familiar with a specific neighbourhood, such as the modern downtown area, the central market for foodies, the alternative Exarchia for politics and street art lovers, Pangrati or Kolonaki for a local immersion in trendy areas.

For a half-day program, you can combine different neighbourhoods, to experience different ambiances and aspects of the city. More time will allow some time for a coffee break, a perfect way to immerse yourself in the local way of life.

A full day is an opportunity for even more experiences and for a lunch break to discover local food in a taverna.

The above examples are just a few suggestions, as I will be determine the route according to multiple factors, for example to match with a weekly farmers’ market, the go-to event in each neighbourhood for groceries!
