There is no better way to get acquainted with a city than on foot. With lightweight audio players and a detailed map this Discovery Walks program offers an easy walking tour of the ancient cobble-stoned streets and historic sights of Athens at your own pace.
The Discovery Player is a full-stereo iPod which will allow you to explore the area's historic sights. The headsets or earpieces provided allow you to listen to all the facts and history of this memorable city while walking through the streets at your own pace. Simply consult the customized map to find each location and then go to the indicated number on the player for a detailed description of the site and its history.
The Discovery Player is yours for the day, so you can go as fast or as slow as you'd like. Follow the suggested Discovery Walks route or set out on your own adventure, moving about the city with ease following the detailed map and audio directions.
With more than 25 of the city's most fascinating points of interest programmed into the player, your exploration of Athens' limitless history is limited only by your personal wishes. Whether it's shopping along one of the city's liveliest pedestrian ways, the rich beauty and history of the Agoras and the Acropolis, or the somber tranquility of the small Byzantine Kapnikarea Church, your Discovery Walks stroll through the heart and soul of ancient Athens will be the highlight of your visit to this wonderfully historic city.
