Full description
For those who want to taste a little bit of everything in the capital of Greece, this will be the perfect tour. Your private tour will start with the Acropolis, a complex of buildings which also includes the Parthenon (main temple), Erectheion (the temple with the 6 female figurers, Caryatides), Temple of Athena Nike (wingless goddess), Propylaia (the monumental gate), Odeon of Herodus Atticus, Dionysus Theater and finally, the Mars Hill or Areios Pagos (the first ancient court and the place where St. Paul preached Christianity for the fist time in Athens).

Your next stop will be the Temple of the Olympian Zeus (the largest temple from Hellenic and Roman times), the Panathenian Stadium (the stadium of the first Olympic Games on 1896), the Memorial of the Unknown Soldier and the changing of the guards (Evzones) in front of the Greek Parliament, opposite the Syntagma or Constitutional Square. 

You will also drive through Plaka (the oldest neighborhood in Athens), the picturesque quarter of the city, where there are little shops with handmade crafts and gifts for you to buy and Monastiraki (flea market), where you can have a pleasant walk and do some shopping with your friends and family. After that, you will see the Athens Trilogy (the Academy, the First University of Athens and the National Greek Library) and finally, Lycabettus Hill (the highest point in Athens) and don't forget to take some pictures to remember in your mind and heart the entire city.
