About the Tour

This walk is, in fact, an interactive performance for romantics! Once Upon a Time is a narration of myths and legends that reflect the beliefs and culture of a people who gave human-like characteristics to divinity. These Gods were not perfect - not by a long shot. They were actively living, singing, dancing, falling in love, hating and cheating one another, and falling victims of their pride and vices, but they nevertheless inspired the old Greeks to become better both individually and as a whole.
Join us in this walk and let your imagination take you to a time when everything was possible.

Our tour guide was Antonia. She was awesome! She took us around the Thissio and Filopappou areas, while providing great information on history, mythology and culture of the city. Highly recommended.
