Join a 3.5-hour guided tour of Athens in which you’ll discover the city’s main attractions and visit the impressive Acropolis accompanied by an expert guide. You will explore both the classic and modern parts of Athens.
Begin your guided tour with a panoramic tour of the city’s main monuments. On the air-conditioned bus your professional English-speaking guide will reveal the history of Athens in an entertaining and interesting way and will also give you information about the landmarks you see.
Some of the monuments you will marvel at include the central square of Athens: Syntagma Square, the National Garden, the Arch of Hadrian, St Paul’s Anglican Church, the Parliament House, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Dionysius, the University of Athens, the Academy of Athens and the National Library.
After a brief stop at the Panathenaic Stadium, an imposing construction made of white marble which was completely reconstructed and where the first modern Olympic Games was celebrated in 1869, you will continue to the Zappeion and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
The highlight of the tour is the guided tour of the world-famous Acropolis of Athens, symbol of the capital. Once inside, you’ll visit some of the best-known landmarks of Classic Greece like the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea.
Your guide will collect you and drop you off at your hotel (if it is a centrally-located hotel). Once you have booked the tour, you will receive an email with your hotel pick-up time. If your hotel is in the outskirts, you will be sent information on the closest hotel you must go to.
If you are traveling to Athens on a cruise ship and dock at Piraeus, please select the Metropolitano Hotel as your pick-up place. You must get to the hotel on your own accord.
