Description

Embark on a captivating day tour through North Athens, where a tapestry of experiences awaits, seamlessly blending vineyard allure, donkey farm delights, and the rich history of ancient antiquities.

Our first destination, Kokotos Estate, unfolds the story of George Kokotos and his family who, in the 1970s, traded city life for the tranquility of Stamata’s hills. Wander through the vineyards, winery, and barrel cellar, surrounded by panoramic views of Mount Pendeli. Traverse olive groves and a permaculture-based vegetable garden, stroll past beehives, and culminate your visit with a wine tasting experience at special monastic tables, soaking in the breathtaking vistas of Pendeli and Parnitha mountains.

Next, immerse yourself in the heartwarming ambiance of Gala Onou, a donkey farm in Avlona. Here, donkeys are bred with utmost care, residing in indoor stables and grazing in well-maintained outdoor areas. Learn about the benefits of donkey’s milk in human health, and partake in a tasting session featuring 50ml of this precious milk and organic cookies, gaining insights into the company’s unique products.

Conclude your day tour at the Archaeological Museum of Thebes, a historical gem with roots dating back to 1894. Explore the evolution of the museum, from its humble beginnings in old barracks to the present-day site showcasing antiquities from Boeotia. Admire exhibits organized by pioneering archaeologists like Antonios D. Keramopoullos and Christos Karouzos, featuring unique findings such as cylinder seals of eastern origin, amphorae with Linear B script, and classical period incised stelae of warriors.

As you navigate through vineyards, donkey farms, and ancient relics, our North Athens Day Tour promises a harmonious blend of nature, culture, and history, leaving you with cherished memories of a day well-spent in this captivating region.
