Guided tours in Athens for free

A noteworthy initiative coming from the Municipality of Athens promises to get you acquainted with the Athenian landmarks for free, provided you book in advance so as to ensure availability. The first tour of the current month was booked for Saturday 5th October 2013. The “Aiolou Street Stroll”, guided by Stella Galanopoulou, inaugurated the free tours’ autumn schedule allowing interested citizens to familiarize themselves, free of charge, with the rich culture, the history and the key spots of Athens assisted by professional tour guides.

The initiative has been introduced by the City of Athens Cultural Organisation which, in collaboration with the Qualified Tourist Guides’ Association, attempts to relieve your relationship with the city from economic stressors. If you love Athens and want to love it even more, you have several upcoming opportunities at your fingertips:

  • To book a tour, please call on + 30 210 3313038 or + 30 210 3240472 (Monday to Friday 10.00 a.m. to 13.00 p.m.)
  • The entrance fee to museums and archaeological sites is payable by the participants
  • In case of bad weather the outdoor tours would not take place [Source: ON AIR, Issue 16]
