You will enjoy a 3,5-hour experience of traditional flavors and recipes at gastronomy multiplex, a favorite meeting spot for both Athenians and visitors. That is undoubtedly the most delicious and enjoyable way to spend your first day in Athens. A professional cook will guide you to the secrets of Greek gastronomy. You will have the chance to prepare your own 3-course meal including homemade spinach pie, the famous tzatziki sauce, a fresh and aromatic Greek salad, chicken “tigania” (fried chicken with peppers) or papoutsakia (traditional recipe with aubergines) and dessert. The best part of the day? You get to savor the authentic local flavors you have prepared and a glass of wine in the cozy, modern restaurant or on the terrace with an amazing view of the Acropolis!

Through beautiful cobble-paved pathways, you will reach the base of the Acropolis where your tour kicks off with your private, expert guide. You will climb to the top reaching what is widely accepted as the navel of Western Civilization. Your guide who is highly educated in Greek history and archaeology will unlock the secrets of this fascinating ancient city. The tour continues into the nearby Acropolis Museum where you can admire this spectacular modern structure, that was designed by the acclaimed architect Bernard Tschumi, offering uninterrupted views of the Acropolis that can be seen through glass-paneled floors. Consistently rated as one of the best museums in the world, you will be guided through must-see artifacts including the original Caryatids from the Erechtheion and the giant pediments that once formed part of the Parthenon.

Discover over 100 designer brands, all in one great location. A neoclassical style building with attention to every detail. The outdoor center is formed on two levels and is dominated by soft shades, pergolas, and alleyways, giving it the feel of a picturesque neighborhood of Athens. Guests will be able to enjoy a unique experience in a beautifully landscaped and safe environment where kids can participate in a variety of activities. While you shop, you can enjoy a delicious meal and a coffee break to fuel up.

This experience lets you travel your mind while tasting drinks and cocktails. The concept has been developed to take a customer’s senses to the next level and pair the mixology with molecular finger food. Before you get to taste any of them, you will be given an informative introduction by the experts in the ‘lab’. Kid-friendly options are also available.

Explore the emblematic buildings of Athens’ neoclassical architecture by walking through Plaka, Anafiotika the “island” in the heart of the city of Athens, and the multicolored Monastiraki. You can shop for the perfect souvenir from your trip to Greece at Monastiraki’s colorful flea market. Take a stroll along Syntagma Square, Athens’ most popular meeting point, and get a taste of how life in the 18th and 19th century was, before gearing up for your last trip experience.

The “Attica Zoological Park” as a member of ΕΑΖΑ (European Association of Zoo and Aquaria) is the only zoological park in Greece today, receiving tens of thousands of visitors of all ages every year. For over ten years, Attica Zoological Park has been offering visitors a unique journey to the five continents, through more than 2.000 animals, from 400 species. The pursuit of the Attica Zoological Park is to be, first and foremost, a place of education for the public and of conservation for the various species.
