Among our walks and stops in the winding alleys of those charming neighborhoods, you will see the houses and shops and feel the ambiance of some of the oldest regions in the city of Athens. You will hear the history of the Jewish population in Athens and Greece and you will see old photographs of the places we visit, making it easy for you to visualize the everyday life of the Greek-Jews, on those very alleys. We will visit the old Jewish market, still named after the Jewish family who opened the first antique shop there. We will of course visit the Synagogues of Athens, and the Monument of the Holocaust.
The classical Athenian archeological sites are also included! We will pass by some Roman monuments, the remains of the Ottoman Mosques, Byzantine churches and beautiful neoclassical constructions of the 19th century.
This unique Jewish Walking Tour in Athens really does include ALL the Jewish sites of the city, plus many important non Jewish sites. All in one morning!
There is always the possibility (optional) of ending the tour with a nice Mediterranean kosher lunch of traditional Sephardic recipes and some new ones by the Rabbi’s wife!
