Join a 5-hour guided tour of Athens and visit one of the most important museums of the capital of Greece accompanied by a professional guide. This tour is ideal for those who wish to discover the best of Athens in a few hours.


Hop on an air-conditioned bus and set off on a panoramic sightseeing tour by bus of the most important monuments of Athens.

The bus will drive past beautiful buildings and squares including Syntagma Square, the National Garden, the Arch of Hadrian, St Pauls 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.

Once inside, you’ll visit the beautiful monuments of Ancient Greece, including the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea, before having around 30 minutes of free time to explore at your own pace.
