Full description
Take a 6 hour tour of all the must-see sights of Athens. If you are visiting Athens for the first time or just want to know, this tour provides an excellent introduction to one of the greatest cities of the ancient world. Your first stop is the Acropolis, for a visit to the symbol of the glory of ancient Greece. Climb the smooth marble steps on the Sacred Way, as visitors have for centuries. At any time, you can stop the car in order to take pictures, have a drink, extend your visit time to a site, shop, or anything else that you need. All tours are private, so you can change the schedule as you like. Along the way you will see many fascinating, ancient monuments that have amazed all who visit. You will visit the Parthenon, the largest building on the Acropolis and one of the world's most awe-inspiring man-made sites. Built by Pericles to honor the virgin goddess Athena, the Parthenon has been the model for thousands of buildings throughout the world. You will see the Theater of Dionysus, the oldest Greek theater built in the 5th Century, and then on to Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, once one of the largest temples in ancient Greece, that took almost 7 centuries to complete. Then take the chance to visit the new Acropolis Museum: Opened in 2009 after 30 years of planning, you will view all exhibits in natural light from a glass gallery. You will visit all this and much, much more as you explore no less than 9 fascinating sites on this 6-hour tour.

Recommended tour

Punctual collection at the meeting point, friendly, safe driver, clean vehicle. Interesting places to visit. Even without a tour, you get an idea of the immense size of the buildings and the areas, as the driver "fed" us with information as we drove there. We were also lucky enough to witness a change of guard in front of the parliament. The driver drove us there specially. Whoever receives this driver has drawn a good ticket.

Fantastic

Our driver was outstanding. He offered alternatives to our itinerary to offset the high temperatures. A wine tasting is always the perfect way to end a tour.
