We’ve all climbed the Acropolis and wandered the winding streets of Plaka. But if we really want to experience the true essence of Athens today, where do we go?
Soul of Athens is your guide to the best of what this city really is right now – and how it’s evolving.
Celebrating both the old and the new, we’ll meet the guardians of the city’s authentic heritage and talk with the bright young things who are building its future. We’ll eat at hidden tavernas, explore the city’s long-forgotten arcades, listen to the melancholic sounds of rebetiko, take a journey to the east on the old Orient Express without leaving Athens, learn about Greece’s finest herbs and sample some of country’s best new wines…
Join us as we experience the Soul of Athens together.
