Full description
Enjoy a well-paced guided tour to admire the most significant classical masterpieces of Greece. Walk uphill through the Propylaea grand marble entrance, contemplating the hills of Philoppapus, Pnyx, and Mars. Discover the astonishing construction of the Parthenon, the most splendid temple ever built by the Greeks - dedicated to the goddess Athena.

Admire the Erechtheion with its renowned Caryatids and the view of the temple of Athena Nike. Gaze at the infinite modern city from the hilltop, stretching between low mountains and the Aegean Sea. Explore the panoramic views of the old town and its picturesque neoclassical buildings, as well as the ancient theater of Dionysus, the Roman temple of Zeus, and the world-famous Herodeion Theater.

Continue on to the spectacular Acropolis Museum, the most modern museum of Athens. Made of concrete, steel, and glass, it houses a wide collection of original sculptures from the Acropolis. Its glass floor reveals the ruins of ancient buildings underneath, and the building displays a pottery collection of high artistic value. Discover the marble masterpieces waiting to be discovered in the first floor, and the top Parthenon Gallery floor with its impressive view of the Acropolis hill, Lycabettus Hill, and the rest of the city.

Complete your tour with a drive around the most popular parts of central Athens, and take a look at the Panathenaic Stadium (the venue of the first modern Olympic Games), the Roman temple of Zeus, and the National Gardens. See the Changing of the Guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in front of the Parliament House and opposite Syntagma Square. Finally, complete your city tour driving by the outstanding trilogy of neoclassical buildings; the 19th-century University of Athens and the Academia and the National Library, at the heart of the city’s modern commercial center.
