Au programme

They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. But some places are really awful. Want to see a different side of Athens? You’re in the right place!

You will find a contrasting city, with a totally different cultural and social character, another topography. Bustling places where tourists and immigrants, street vendors, and passers-by bump into each other, passing through it in a rush. This mix of cultural diversity and mirror of social “disorder”.

Ungentrified and lively, the oldest limb of the modern metropolis—an area where no-frills Greek classics sit next to ethnic eats, 60s office blocks, and old printing presses. Not Athens’ prettiest face. 

Godforsaken places and a lot of urban decay: awful can be awesome. Dare to see it.

Discover one of the most controversial and offbeat areas of Athens – only for true explorers.  

-Please note that this experience is not advised for the faint-hearted.

-The visit will be totally personalized, with a group of a maximum of 6 people.

I am a storyteller of social issues. I have a background in Political Science.

I always try to find unique ways of putting pieces together. I want all to feel what’s going on either through revealing the secrets or examining in detail. By delivering deep insight with a light touch. By pushing beyond predictable opinions and formats to inform, engage, challenge, and entertain.

Le lieu

In this part of town (Victoria, Aghios Panteleimonas, Metaxourgeio, and Omonia) for modern adventurers, immigrants, and destroyed bodies and souls; you will find old decrepit neoclassical houses as well as some scattered “alternative” (as they style themselves) entertainment venues, which seem to be trying to forcibly change the identity of those areas.  In the end, we'll visit completely gentrified Pysri, to see how the future looks like.

Isaac is a very knowledgable host that knows a lot about the social and political state of Athens. In this tour he shows you both the gritty, rough part as the fully gentrified part of the city, which are both “awful” in it’s on way as the tour promises. He explains to you what you see and places it in te right context. Really interesting and recommended for people who want to have a look behind the curtain of the city.

Great insight to the many different sides and contrasts of Athens. You learn about why certain areas and buildings look the way they do, through a historic and social perspective. Isaac did a great job making sure we were comfortable with what we were going to see. Finally, there was a good variety between a serious and comedic approach, that fit the context perfectly. Very affordable as well 😊Would recommend!
