On this Athens Photography Walking Tour you will follow the footsteps of everyday people and their cultures through the centuries. Stroll by small white-washed houses built amidst the rocks beneath the gaze of the Acropolis. The narrow meandering steep streets and steps, stone walls and gardens filled with flowers give the impression of being on a Greek island.
You will see the tower of the winds, a weather vane, a sundial and a hydraulic clock housed in an octagonal tower built by the astronomer Andronicus. See the Roman Agora, the remains of Hadrian's Library built in 132 AD seen at a distance, and Fethiye Djami – Mosque of the conqueror, considered one of the oldest and finest Ottoman monuments in Athens.
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.
