Key Greek buildings that we can visit on our Athens Architecture Tours are the New Acropolis Museum Building Bernard Tschumi Architects and the Olympic Tennis Centre Building by Potiropoulos D+L Architects. Groups can also visit the Astir Palace and Placebo Pharmacy buildings.

The walking tour is focused on contemporary architecture in the Greek capital. If you are interested in the famous historic monuments of Athens – such as the Parthenon, Erechtheum and Propylaia – then we can suggest bolt-on tour guides.

Major architects who have designed buildings in the Greek capital include Santiago Calatrava, Renzo Piano, Bernard Tschumi and JDS.

Athens Walking Tours

Athens Architecture Tours can focus on contemporary buildings, older buildings or a mix of both. The Athens Architecture Tour is typically an introduction to the city’s main buildings but it can be tailored to your group’s particular areas of interest.

Recent buildings include the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop – RPBW:

For Walking Tours of Athens we can provide a basic outline of types and areas of Greek buildings. We can provide information on the key areas and building types up to a year ahead of Athens Architecture Tours. A group of architects interested in (for example) innovative Athens housing or office buildings could be provided with tailored information allowing a tour programme to be agreed prior to their visit to Greece.
