What to Expect
This tour is the most popular choice for vacationers with a short time in Athens. In your air-conditioned vehicle, you will learn about Athen's history, traditions, art, and architectural wonders from your own highly-educated licensed guide.

Step back 2,500 years to the land known as the cradle of democracy. Explore the Acropolis, considered the crowning jewel and sacred rock of Athens. Here you will see the greatness of the Parthenon, which is called the architectural masterpiece of the Golden Agem, the Temples of Nike and Athena, the Carytids, the Erechtheion, and the Propylea.

Afterward, it's off to the cobblestoned village of Plaka, a vibrant, colorful cornucopia of cafes, shops, Byzantine churches, and Agoura ruins. Here you will have a little time to shop and explore the labyrinth of alleyways with plenty of photo-taking opportunities.

Lastly, see ancient and modern architectural wonders of Athens. Tour the magnificent Temple of Olympian Zeus (700 years old), Hadrian's Arch, the Olympic Stadium (birthplace of the modern Olympics), the Parliament House (featuring a changing of the guards every hour), and much more.
