You will visit some of the city’s familiar landmarks, where major public demonstrations have taken place, whilst your political expert will talk about the chief reasons behind angry clashes and explain how harsh austerity measures have had a devastating impact on Greek society.


Visit the Parliament Building in Syntagma square, often targeted by thousands of protesters, venting their frustration regarding the economic problems of the country and the Marfin bank, where in 2010, a fatal fire cost the lives of three employees during a protest over the debt crisis.
