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.

After stopping briefly at the Panathenaic Stadium, you will continue the tour past Zappeion and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
