After your guide picks you up from your hotel on foot, your tour kicks off with – what else? – the sacred Acropolis Hill. With our expert tour guide by your side, you will learn everything about the monumental buildings of the Acropolis, including the godly Parthenon, the Temple of Nike, the Propylaea and the sacred Erechtheion. Descending the Acropolis Hill, you will reach the Acropolis Museum, where you'll have the chance to admire exhibits and artifacts nearly 3.000 years old. Following your visit to the museum, you'll explore the emblematic buildings of Athens’ neoclassical architecture by walking through Plaka, the picturesque “island-like" neighborhood in the heart of Athens, home to the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates!
After a refueling lunch break, hop on your luxury vehicle and start your city tour across Athens' most important monuments, including the Library of Hadrian and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Continue to the multicolored Monastiraki, with its vivid flea market, and dip your toes into 18th and 19th-century Athens by driving around Syntagma Square, home to the Greek Parliament since the establishment of the new Greek state. Right next to the imposing building, you will breathe in the scent of the hundreds of plant species found in the National Garden and marvel at the Panathenaic Stadium, where the 1st modern Olympic Games took place! This tour is definitely one of the best things to do in Athens and a must for all of our Greece vacation packages!
