Discover the modern side of Athens!
Few people would associate Athens with modern or contemporary architecture!
The city as a settlement is more than 3,500 years old but as a national capital it is fairly young. With the help of significant pictures and plans our architects show how, Athens, a provincial town of 12,000 inhabitants in 1830, has became a metropolis of 4,500,000 people, in less than 200 years.
ARCULT.gr aims to offer you a different view of the city by visiting examples of the work of well known architects.
Let us know about your specific interests and we will be glad to organize a tour, focused on architecture or urban planning, specifically for you.
Tours can last from a few hours to a full day and are available in Greek, English or Italian.
We will also be happy to provide you with all the necessary information about accommodations and transportation and give you tips for restaurants and entertainment.
ARCULT.gr is looking forward to welcoming you in Athens.
