Curated Audiovisual Walks with Enhanced Google Technology

November 10, 2022

ATHENS – An immersive way to explore the city of Athens on foot based on curated audiovisual walks was announced on Thursday by the Greek Tourism Ministry, the municipality of Athens and Google.

By visiting athens.withgoogle.com, a visitor can select a suggested fixed route in central Athens which includes audio descpritions and video footage of key spots along the way.

Commenting, Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias said that the announcement “follows the strategic partnership we have launched with Google on sustainable tourism since April 2022,” and the walks are part of the plan “Athens. The city is the museum”.

The ministry and City of Athens partnership with Google was initiated by tourism professionals in the spring of this year.

The minister called this latest set of curated walks “an innovative initiative” that will open Athens to a more personal experience by tourists and reveal less obvious landmarks in a modern and innovative way.
