A Photo Walk under the shade of Acropolis on Dionysiou Areopagiti Street; one of the city’s most popular and scenic pedestrian promenade, where the modern Greek capital links with its ancient sites. It is named after Dionysius the Areopagite, the first Athenian convert to Christianity after Apostle Paul’s sermon, according to the Acts of the Apostles.

Our Photo Walk will take us to emblematic archaeological sites, a 16th-century picturesque little church, viewing areas, and also introduce you to the neoclassical and modern architecture of the buildings along the vibrant pedestrian walkway that changes its name to Apostolou Pavlou as we head towards the hip Thisseio area.

You will be able to capture the local street life, street artists, Athenian archaeological landmarks, views of the Acropolis and classic Athenian architectural details.

Our route will introduce you to art deco style Athenian buildings,  the Acropolis Museum, the Theater of Dionysos where competitions took place for the best dramas in honor of the pleasure god, Dionysos, the Herodes Atticus Theater; the 2nd century A.D once cedar-roofed “Irodion” at the foot of the Acropolis, holds today Athens Festival performances on balmy evenings, views of the Parthenon all along the route, the Areopagus where trials were held and finally to lively Thisseio area full of coffee shops, street vendors and artists where you can sit down for a coffee break or a pikilia! (hot or cold mixed appetizers)
Have a look in our gallery, be inspired and come join me for a Photo Walk in Athens!
