TOUR TO ATHENS
Athens is a city of extraordinary cultural and archaeological interest.
Our tour begins at Acropolis. When you approach the top of this sacred rock, you’ll be able to admire the Temple of Goddess Athina Niki, then Parthenon, the greatest monument of the spirit, the civilization and the democracy standing there proud over the centuries, the Erehtheion with the elegant statues of Caryatides and finally the Herodes Atticus Theater.
Within walking distance lies the new Acropolis Museum, where the exhibits you can admire, are the most important achievements of the ancient greek civilization.
Our tour continues, as we pass by Adrianos Gate and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Kallimarmaron Stadion where the first modern era Olympic Games took place in 1896, the Greek Parliament on Plateia Syntagmatos (Constitution square), the National Library, the Academy, the Presidential Palace founded in 1912, the Presidential Guard and Zappeion Megaron. Our next stop is the Archaeological Museum of Athens, where you will admire the masterpieces of the ancient greek civilization.
Last stop is Athens highest point, Lycabettus hill, where you will be amazed by the magnificent view.
This tour could be easily combined with a tour to ancient Temple of God Poseidon at Cape Sounion.
During the tour – and upon relevant request - a professional guide could be of your assistance, to accompany you all throughout your trip and visits to archaeological sites and museums.
We strongly recommend that, as the greek legislation excludes professional drivers from entering and walking around these places accompanying their clients, granting this task to the union of the greek professional guides.
