We're going to have a historical walk around Thiseio and Petralona, some of the most traditional and picturesque neighborhoods in Athens, that hold still their special, older character. We'll have a talk about the history of the whole are, about how it has changed and transformed from the ancient times until today. We'll be in position to admire and analyze the background of a number of: neoclassical-eclecticist, rich houses of the 10's-20's that became residence for the working class during the 60's and 70's, parts of the settlement that the Greek refugees from Turkey built in the area after 1922 and early industrial buildings (gas factory of 1857, chocolate factory 1876), and the hat factory that was functional until the 1960's. We'll walk across picturesque Troon street that nowadays has been transformed into an attractive, alternative place for coffee, food and easy walks. After our walk, you'll be able to answer questions such as: which is the famous restaurant that was used as a refuge during World War II? Why was the area named Petralona and Thiseio? Where did the ancient pregnant women use to roll themselves in order o have a safe birth? Looking forward!

Hello world! I'm Thanos, I come from Kalamata and I've been living in Athens center for the last 10 years! Let me take you for a walk around the traditional neighborhood which I fell in love and has now become my home! Holding a degree in Computer Engineering and studying History & Archaeology, my special interest in modern Greek history makes me able to hold a lot of information about how the whole area has changed and transformed through time! I use to walk around the area almost every afternoon, exploring the people's personal stories and dreams!
