Hi everyone! My name is Julian. I am an archaeological student originally from Montreal Canada, and curently livingin Athens Greece. I am currently completing my masters degree with Kent University in Heritage Management, with a campus located in the town of Elefsina. The focus of my studies is in preparing and presenting archaeological and heritage information for public comsumption. Many of you are on this website as you seek both a unique and informative experience from your stay in Greece. I am happy to be able to offer both whilst providing an element of fun in my walking narration of the past. I would love to invite you to join me in a journey through time.

Sobre el tour

The history of Athens is a history of blood, sweat and tears. From humble origins, Athens rose up to be a dominating Mediterranean power, standing up against the likes of the Persians, Spartans, Macedonians, Romans and the Ottomans. In order to face these formidable foes, Athens constructed some of largest defensive fortifications known to the Greek world, which completed several circuits around the city. In ancient Athens, warfare was entwined in all aspects of life, from democracy to religion, politics, economics and even the everyday lives of individual citizens.

Athens as we know it today lies atop the ruins of countless cities before it, which were built up from prosperity and torn down from conquest.

This tour will focus on the military history of the city itself, ranging from late Mycenaean times (1200 BC) until the end of Civil War (1949). We will use the remnants of the past city and its various stages of walls to explore the history of Athenian War.

Join me as we tour from Kerameikos to Syntagma to explore the often forgotten turbulent history of such a important city.

We will be stopping at between 8-12 focal points spread across a 2 and a half hour walk. This walk will require climbing up both the hill of the Nymphs and Muses and will cover a distance of around 5km. I advise you to bring comfortable shoes as well as plenty of water to drink.

¿Cual es el precio?

Un guruwalk es un tour de libre pago, es decir, es completamente gratis reservar, pero el 'guru' espera ser recompensado al final con la cantidad que tu quieras. Algunas personas dan 5, otras dan 50, tu eliges el precio.

Es obligatorio reservar antes de asistir, porque si el guru cree que no ha reservado nadie ese día no acudirá al punto de encuentro, o si ese día tiene demasiados 'walkers' puede no permitir que te unas al grupo. Reservar es super fácil, rápido y totalmente gratis. ¡Reserva tu guruwalk ahora!
