Modern History Tour Experiences
We’re the first to sing its praises, but Classical Greek culture is just one part of the wonderful heritage that makes Greek culture so unique. From prehistory to the Byzantine and Ottoman eras, there have been many influences and distinct historical periods with fascinating cultural expressions. And whilst most operators focus on Greece’s classical heritage, we felt it our duty to also provide cultural tours that showcase an often-overlooked period: the Modern History of Greece.
Focusing on the years from the Greek War of Independence (1821-1832) to the early 20th century, our Modern History walking tours celebrate the creation of the Greek state. They include guided tours of the National Garden and key museums, and they blend architecture, art, and history to paint a vivid image of life in then newly independent Greece.
