Visiting Athens is a unique experience, so you can join us, and you will have the chance to discover our history, civilization and beauty of our wonderful city. Take the opportunity to observe the striking contrasts that make Athens such a fascinating city.
Starting with a pickup from your Athens hotel we will see the most important monuments of Athens.
You will have the chance to admire the magnificent panorama of the city from Lycabetus hill at 908 ft. (277 m). Lycabettus stands high above Athens, commanding a clear view across the Attica basin and the Aegean. At the top of the hill is the church of St.George, a stunning whitewashed church , which dates back to 1870.
You will marvel the Acropolis which UNESCO calls the symbol of World Heritage. It’s the symbol of democracy and Greek civilization. It’s the site of four of the greatest masterpieces of classical Greek art – the Parthenon (former temple on the Athenian Acropolis, Greece, dedicated to the goddess Athena), Propylaia (the monumental gateway to the Acropolis), the Erechtheion (is an ancient Greek temple on the north side of the Acropolis of Athens in Greece which was dedicated to both Athena and Poseidon) and the Temple of Athena Nike.
We will head over to Sydagma square and admire the changing of the guards (evzones) in front of the Greek parliament and the memorial of the Unknown soldier.
Next is Monastiraki square, and the trilogy of our culture (the academy of Athens, the university, and the national library). We will continue and admire the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Hadrian’s Arch and the Panathenaic Stadium (also known as the Kallimármaro (Καλλιμάρμαρο), meaning the “beautifully marble”, is the only stadium in the world built entirely of marble that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.
Finally, before we drive you back at your accommodation, you will have free time in the ancient neighborhood of Athens close to Acropolis, named Plaka. Plaka is full of people, music, typical restaurants “tavernas”, beautiful houses, cozy cafes, little shops of souvenirs.
