Exploring Athens’ Old Center

On Monday the 26th of December ( Boxing Day ), SAS organize an easy stroll around the old center of Athens starting from Metaxourgio, passing the areas of Gazi, Keramikos, Thisio, Monastiraki and finishing at Psiri where we’ll take our meal at one of the many ‘ mezedopolia ’ …  as well as our dessert at ‘ Ta Serbetia ’, most famous in Athens of its kind !

Duration of the walk is 2,5 hours approx. including some stops at points of interest, such as neoclassic buildings, ancient sites, museums etc.
