You will be greeted at your hotel, airport, port or outside your cruise terminal and will make your way to the most authentic and famous places in Athens and begin your tour with a visit at the Acropolis Hill or New Acropolis Museum, you will have the opportunity to see the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion, the Propylaea and of course the Parthenon. With this Acropolis day tour, you will enjoy one of the top UNESCO'S world heritage monuments.

From the Acropolis, you can also look down on the Ancient Agora, the Tower of the Winds, Monastiraki and Plaka, a combination of the old and new Athens, where the old and modern co-exist in harmony, in a commercial nostalgic area, reminiscent of the East and West.​

You will then continue on to visit the Panathenaic Olympic Stadium also known as Kallimarmaro, the only major stadium entirely built of white marble which is one of the oldest in the world.​The “sports jewel” of the city that hosted the revival of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 and is full of images of yesterday. 

We continue from the “historical centre” to the centre of today, the Syntagma Square and the Parliament Building with the impressive changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, while around one can find many shops and their impressive windows.​From here, you will continue to Panepistimiou Street to see numerous neoclassical buildings still standing and dating back to the late 19th century (The Academy - The University - The National Library).

After that we will drive to Lycabettus Hill (the highest hill of Athens) where you'll have the best panoramic view of the city for great photo opportunities (this stop is not available for large groups).​

At the end of the tour your private transfer will escort you to the port, airport or your hotel.

*The New Acropolis Museum. A brand new museum opened in 2009 and it is counted as one of the best museums in the world,​
