Take a private day trip to Athens and the Acropolis Museum with an air-conditioned vehicle from Kalamata.
What to Expect
The trip will start from your hotel early in the morning and during the first half hour the guide will try to understand your preferences and tailor the rest of the trip to your travel needs. During the next two hours that you need to get to Athens, you will cross villages and country roads full of olive and orange trees but also full of myths and traditions.
Somewhere in the middle of the route you will pass through the Corinth Canal, where you can take a break to admire this human achievement. During the route you will learn everything about the Golden Age of Athens and Pericles (5th century BC), and all the myths and historical data relating to the creation of the Acropolis. Some of the world famous attractions that are preserved until today and you will be able to admire are the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike.
After about two hours walking the main archaeological site, it is time for the Acropolis Museum, one of the most modern and impressive museums in the world. You will have the opportunity to visit the traditional narrow alleys of Plaka, one of the oldest districts of modern Athens. There, between souvenir shops, cafes and traditional taverns you will be able to eat and rest before the way back.
