Athens Adventures walking tour

walking tour leaves Athens Backpackers everyday 10.15am returns
12.30-1.00pm only 5.euro

Just arrived? Let us take you around this fascinating city and tell
you a few stories. From politics to plumbing, the ancients invented it
all and right here in Athens! You're shown the streets by a young
local who can answer all your questions and show you where everything
is, essential stuff!

Thursdays
Leaves Athens Backpackers 9.00am returns 7-8.00pm

Nafplio, Palamidis castle, sweetwater bay and the Corinth Canal. 50.00 euro

Deep in the Peloponnesus lies Nafplio, an ancient town situated on a
pinnacle of land pointing into the Mediterranean sea. Awash with
history, its Venetian cobbled streets contain remnants from past
civilizations and religions; it's like a huge open air museum. Nafplio
lies in the shadow of the largest fortress in Greece, Palamidis. We
climb (optional!) the 999 steps to the castle entrance and explore the
labyrinth of tunnels and parapets. Sweetwater bay is a deserted sandy
cove beyond Palamidis.
After a day of exploring there is nothing better than a swim and a
picnic on the beach.

Saturdays
Leaves Athens Backpackers 9.00am returns 7-8.00pm

Ancient Delphi and the Temple of Apollo, Horio Arrachova. 50.00

Follow in the footsteps of the ancients and make the pilgrimage to
consult the Oracle at Delphi, you're in good company, lionadis (leader
of the Spartans), Alexander the great and Socrates made the journey to
take 'the knowledge' from the wise women.
The most spectacular of all the ancient sights, the mountain is
covered with temples built as gifts from the spoils of war. Pagan
belief says that Delphi is the center of the world; the closest
mankind can get to Mother Nature, literally, the 'navel' of the earth.
It's going to blow your mind.

Sundays
Leaves Athens Backpackers 11.00am returns 6-7pm

Temple of Poseidon (god of the sea) and the beaches of Cape Sounio. 35.00

Pack-up your towel and trunks, we're off to the beach! The waters of
cape Sounio are a shocking deep turquoise and look so inviting from
high up on the temple of Poseidon. The temple is similar to the
Parthenon in Athens and was a great lookout across the Mediterranean
and the Greek islands. Today we take in the views and explore the
ruins before heading to the beach for an afternoon of fun.
Prices are per person per night.
