Description

Visit Acropolis and Athens' most important sites while travelling in a luxury air-conditioned minivan with a limited group of 18 people, which ensures personalised attention from your professional guide.

Meet your passionate guide at your Athens central hotel and head into the heart of the city. Stop at the House of the Greek Parliament and watch the changing of the guards in front of the Unknown Soldier monument. Greek Guards, also known as “Euzones” or “Tsoliades” are integrated into the history of Athens that was established in 1868 as a regiment of the Greek Army and symbolise until today's boldness and bravery for the Greek nation. Continue passing by some of the most famous attractions of Athens, such as the National Garden, St. Paul’s Church - Catholic Cathedral, Schliemann's House (Numismatic Museum), Academy, University of Athens, National Library, Old Parliament, and Russian Orthodox Church. Keep your camera ready and enjoy a short stop at the Panathinaiko Stadium, the cradle of the first Olympic Games that took place in 1896. Circle around Zappion, the Roman Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian’s Arc and head for the new Acropolis museum. Main attractions such as votives, artefacts of everyday life, statues from archaic period, Caryatids, and of course, the Parthenon hall with the metopes, the pediments, and the frieze will impress you.

Having explored the Acropolis Museum, continue to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis from the south slope to avoid the crowds and also to visit the Dionysus sanctuary and Dionysus Theatre built in the 5th century BC. Your licensed guide will give you a detailed explanation of the glorious monuments of the Acropolis such as the Parthenon, the Erectheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple, and the surrounding monuments such as the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Observatory as well as the Philopappos.
