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.
