Hi there! I am native Athenian who belongs to the new generation of Greeks that believe that Greece is more than just ouzo, bouzouki and souvlaki. I have a passion for discovering hidden corners of Athens and unveiling the secrets of this complex and diverse city. I have travelled extensively in Greece and abroad and love cultural crossings, great conversations and authentic, delicious food! Some time ago I decided that I wanted to show travellers Athens in the same way I do when I travel, off the beaten path, so I set up my tour company called Alternative_Athens. If you are travelling to Athens or Greece me and my team can help you plan your trip in a creative, fun and non-touristic way,so just drop a line anytime! Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
