On Saturday the 7th of March at 12:00΄, SAS organize an easy stroll in the historic centre of Athens. The walk will begin from ‘‘ the National Garden ’’ that was created in 1836 and for some years was the royal garden adjacent to the former Palace, now the Greek Parliament. In Plaka district will have the opportunity to notice some famous buildings of the past, like ‘‘ Benizelos Mansion ’’, poet Seferis’ house, the ‘‘ first University ’’ of Greece, some picturesque churches and many others. The stroll will end at the unique ‘‘ Anafiotika ’’ where will … try to find the best ‘‘ mezedopoleio ’’ to take our meal !
