I am a writer who lives and wanders all his life in Athens. I like to discover the story behind every spot of the city. Either it originates from the rich Greek mythology or the equally rich Greek Folk tradition. I have hosted and guided many people from various countries in lesser known paths of the ancient capitol, both actual and cultural.
We shall walk into the house of Proklos. Continue our way down to the pedestrian street and take pics of flora and hidden in plain sight mosaics, visit st. Katrhin's church, walk by the statue of Alexander the Great and Byron, pass by the Roman sauna, stand infront of Zappeion, trek into the national garden and end in the Parliament and the Evzons or the Panathinaikon stadium. We can have the exact same route in reverse.
