Full description
Your private tour will start with the Acropolis, a complex of buildings that includes the Parthenon (main temple), the best example of classic architecture from the 5th-century BC, Erectheion (the temple with 6 female figurers, Caryatides), the Temple of Athena Nike (Wingless Godess), 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 that St. Paul preached Christianity for the first time in Athens).

The next stop will be the Temple Of the Olympian Zeus (the largest temple in Hellenic and Roman times), the Panathenian Stadium (the stadium of the first Olympic Games in 1896), the Memorial of the Unknown Soldier and the Changing of the Guards (Euzones) in front of the Greek Parliament, opposite the Syntagma or Constitutional Square. After that, you will see the Trilogy of Athens (the Academy, the First University of Athens and the National Greek Library) and finally, the Lycabettus Hill (the highest point of Athens) and don't forget to take some pictures and a memory in your mind and heart of the entire city.

Drive through Plaka (the oldest neighborhood in Athens), a 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 shop with your friends and family. If time permits, your next stop will be the ancient Greek Agora or the Roman Agora (ancient markets), where you'll find the Temple of Hephaestus (the most well preserved temple in Greece), the Stoa of Attalos and the beautiful St. Catherine Orthodox Church. When you feel hungry, get ready to taste some famous Greek cuisine and have a memorable lunch. The tour will guide you to a traditional Athens restaurant or tavern. It's up to you to choose from a variety of flavors of the most well-known Greek dishes. After lunch, enjoy a visit to the New Acropolis Museum, where you can see the marbles of the Parthenon and a superb collection of artifacts and relics found on the Acropolis excavations or the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, almost twice the size of the previous one that houses some of the most important artifacts from a variety of archaeological locations not only Greece, but the Middle East and the Balkans as well from prehistory to late antiquity.
