Would you like to walk in your city, as if walking around it for the first time? To explore its invisible aspects and to discover ancient fortifications in the most unexpected places? Do you love knowledge, history and wanderings?

If so, let the digital app Walk the Wall Athens lead you on a walk different than others. Follow the course of the ancient city wall, which surrounds the city like a historical chain.

On every step along the wall, you will meet the visible traces of the ancient past. You will find yourself in basements, in open-air plots and under glass floors.

The digital app implemented by Dipylon together with fluidmedia was launched in June 2018 and is under the auspices of the City of Athens. Out of the total of 180 archaeological sites where remains of the ancient wall have been revealed so far, we selected 35 spots for this historical route.

The mobile app Walk the Wall - Athens includes:

  • interactive map with 35 points of interest (POI)
  • accurate coordinates that allow the user to spot the ancient remains
  • audio tour for each POI
  • rich visual material
  • information on the fortification of Athens
  • glossary of archaeological terms

Available languages: ENGLISH and GREEK

In September 2018, Walk the Wall Athens was awarded the silver award in the category of Tourism/Culture at the Mobile Excellence Awards.

It was also nominated as the best national digital solution for Greece at the 2018 World Summit Awards and made it to the shortlist.
