Athens Night Owls


Athens First Free Night Walking Tours:

The Athens Night Owl...

The Goddess Athena is the embodiment of reason, strategic warfare and wisdom. The patron goddess of the city of Athens.

According to myth, an owl sat on Athena’s blind side, so that she could see the whole truth. For the Greeks and the Romans, the owl -being sacred to Athena- was a symbol of higher wisdom, an embodiment of her intellectual powers.

Mythology tells us that Athena herself at times also took the very form of her favorite bird. She transformed into an owl to be closer to mortal humans.
The world-famous little owl (Athene noctua) of Athena, can still be seen at night-time, flying around different hills of Athens. Our walking tour is a night hunt not only for the best views and the best stories but also a hunt to spot Athens’ night owls.

Join us and you' ll see places you won't find in your tour-guide books.
