Athens Photography Walking Tour
By Viator, April 2011
The tour begins near Athens’ major archaeological sites, and takes you walking 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, and the 3000-year-old theaters that premiered the plays of Sophocles and Euripides and still host drama today.
While walking, pick up photography tips about lighting and composition, and see Athens from a local's perspective.
There are superb vantage points from the sacred Hill of Philopappou to photograph the Acropolis, and evening scenes in Plaka of magically lit restaurants scattered over the hillside.
