Athens Photography Walking Tour: Hills and Demes of Ancient Greece

Starting at the pedestrian area of Apostolou Pavlou street, which unites the major archaeological sites of Athens, you will follow in the steps of Hadrian to see where he attended the inauguration of the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Wind your way past Roman ruins, mosques, temples and the homes of the Greek Gods of Olympus as en route you see the 3000 year old Theatres which premiered the plays of Sophocles and Euripides and that are still in use today.

You will have superb vantage points from the sacred Hill of Philopappou (Hills of the Muses) to photograph the Acropolis, then on to Plaka passing the magically lit restaurants scattered all over the hillside. You will learn how to work with light and shadows, color and forms in a creative way, how to use photographic techniques to advantage and how to be ready to take great photos any time you go out with your camera.

The goal of the Athens Photography Walking Tour is to:

  • Discover and experience a city through the eyes of a local photographer
  • Encourage the observation of new viewpoints and interesting details which might easily be overlooked
  • Improve photography technique
  • Have a more interesting experience and involvement when visiting a city
  • Have fun!
