This is your chance to get an epic sunrise photo of Athens. Join our professional photographer early in the morning for a Sunrise Athens Photo Tour, as you will find your way up to Filopapou hill overlooking the Acropolis hill, and Parthenon. 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.

Athens city is mostly sunny with almost 300 days of sunshine! Be sure to wear comfortable light clothes (during summer) and walking shoes. Bring your camera, dslr, mirrorless, point and shoot or even your mobile phone. This tour is open to all photographers! Expect to walk in pavement roads, but also on uneven paths with a small elevation (up to Filopapou hill). After finishing our sunrise photos we will walk towards the center of Athens, enjoying coffee, tea and some breakfast bakery delight.
