Like Locals launches in Athens
Like Locals is now live in Athens with 15 brand new Footprints covering the center and south of the city.
After a successful launch in Barcelona, Budapest, and London, with the help of the local community, we have prepared for you the most authentic, self-guided walks in Athens that are guaranteed to show you the real face of the city, through the eyes of the locals.
The new footprints will become available starting today on our free app for both Android and iOS devices.
This is the first step towards Like Locals’ expansion through Europe, and we plan to cover another 3 cities in the coming winter. We are super excited to announce Athens as our most recent addition to our app and we appreciate the efforts of everyone who helped us make this happen – especially the locals!
A city for everyone
Whether you are young or old, Athens is bound to satisfy you. Its unique landscape and warm climate, its outdoor markets and rich history, its lively nightlife and the vibrant urban culture; all make this place so special. The city is so dense that every neighborhood has a completely different character and feel.
Follow Alexis’ footprints downtown, or step into the shoes of our local Red-Bull athlete Nikolas, a.k.a the “child of the South”. Shadow Thaleia around the centre of the city for the most authentic gastronomic experiences, or get ready to discover the best of Athens’ art scene with Stefania. Whatever your mood or cravings, there is a local out there who has made sure to guide you to the coolest places in town.
Here is a taster of what you can discover with the app:
Anafiotika by Angeliki
Filopappou Hill by Alexis
Street art in Psyrri by Stefania
Vouliagmeni – Nikolas
Our locals have walked the great outdoors, uncovered the urban culture, stepped into the history, exposed the hidden art and dove into the night, for you to experience Athens like only they know best.
The planning has been done, the information has been gathered, it has all been put nicely together – now it’s time for you to go out there and do the rest! What are you waiting for?
