Following Tasos you will learn about the difficulties that homeless people face, the impact of the economic and refugee crisis but you will also have lots of fun and a unique experience of how locals have fun and spent their night. With Tasos you will be introduced to the vibrant Athenian spirit by exploring the most “hidden” places in Athens, such as authentic restaurants, cool industrial-designed bars and coffee shops that only locals know in Metaxourgeio, Gazi and Kerameikos
