You will be guided to a scenic spot where you can watch the sunrise as it unfolds in the Greek capital. The image is wonderful, and Athens is a city enjoying almost 300 days of sunshine and nice weather. You will be arriving one hour earlier, before sunrise so we can start photographing the blue hour, then sunrise and the golden hour, as the sun rises from behind Immitos mountain. Check out this article to better understand blue hour, golden hour and twilights. Also, have a look at this Sunrise calculator for Athens.
