Welcome to ALTERNATIVE_ATHENS, a different way of travelling and discovering the secrets of this fascinating, complex and diverse city, Athens.

Whether taking one of our walking tours, participating in our workshops, or tasting one of our home-cooked meals, our aim is to offer you a genuine Athenian experience:


  • discovering non-touristic neighborhoods, streets and locations,
  • visiting places where the Athenians eat, shop and have fun in their everyday life,
  • exploring new, uncharted locations that are just emerging.

You will see Athens as we see it –through the eyes of a local. Everything we do is based on experiences, not just passive sightseeing and tourist stereotypes.

We love meeting people, exchanging ideas, and –what travelling’s all about– sharing all we can about our city and our culture.

Are you ready to discover one of the most fascinating cities in the world?
