Full description
After pick-up from your hotel or port by private driver your first stop is the heart of Athens, the Acropolis. Observe the city’s rich history, documented in every piece of marble gracing the Parthenon, Erechtheion and Propylaea. From the rocky heights view the new Acropolis Museum, an architectural jewel which hosts a rich variety of treasures. From there head towards the city centre to see Syntagma Square, the Greek Parliament and the impressive Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the heart of the modern Greek Republic. Then enter the most cosmopolitan quarter with its elegant shops and countless dining options. Next take the road to the Panathenaic Stadium which hosted the first modern Olympic Games at their revival in 1896. Nearby enjoy the cool shade of the National Gardens and view the Zappeion Megaro Hall, one of the city’s most important and impressive neoclassical buildings. Finally, your route will pass by the picturesque Plaka area to enjoy the famous view from the Lycabettus Hill. Savour the sight of Athens laid out before you illuminated and noble.
