Athens evening highlights tour with meze dinner
Stroll through the streets of Athens after the sun goes down and admire the illuminated edifices of centuries-old ruins as you feel the pulse of the city's nightlife and listen to your guide's engaging commentary. Dig into some plates of tasty Greek "mezedes" along the way and end your walk in the vibrant Psyrri quarter.
Your tour begins in Syntagma Square, where you will see the Old Royal Palace aglow before you stroll across the bustling Ermou Street towards Plaka. Scope out the second-century seating at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus theater, which still hosts performances today, and then see where ancient Greeks met up as you check out crumbling columns around the ruins of the Ancient Agora.
Dive into Monastiraki for some flea market bargains found among the vendors scattered around the charming neighborhood, and then end you tour amid the lights and activity of Psyrri. Find out which buzzing bars and restaurants entice the locals and dig into a tasty plate of "mezedes" (appetizers) as you sip wine or raki before your evening comes to an end.
