Overview

We chose for you a package of sights and monuments that you “must see” as you come to Greece. You’ll enjoy the best of Athens with our knowledgeable English speaking driver and you’ll see Greece through our eyes. Our driver will come and pick you up in a comfortable sedan/van/mini bus from your accommodation or other preferred point. Our tour will start with the most important site, the Acropolis Parthenon .
The temple of Parthenon is listed as an UNESCO world heritage site and is considered as one of the most important archaeological sites of the world. Follow the steps of ancient Greeks and enter the acropolis through the propylaea to see the temple of Athena Nike, the Erectheion and enjoy one of the most amazing views of Athens.
Then we will continue to our next stop, Hadrian’s Arch and Temple of Olympian Zeus. The temple construction began in the 6th century but it was not completed until the reign of the roman emperor Hadrian 638 years later. During the Roman period it was renowned as the largest temple in Greece. A few meters away you will see Hadrian’s Arch.
A unique monument that was built by the Athenians in 131 A.D to honor the roman emperor Hadrian for the completion of the Temple of Olympian Zeus.We’ll continue our exploration with the magnificent and famous Panatheniac stadium, that is also known as Kalimarmaro, where the first modern Olympic games were held in 1896.
After that it is time to visit the parliament house. There we will see a view of the constitution square and the beautiful hotels that surround it. You will have the opportunity to see the change of the guards and the tomb of the unknown soldier. Next stop will be the Athens trilogy(academy of Athens -university-national library). You will take a peek at the neoclassical Athenian architecture. The complex was completed in 1870.
You will walk around to see the beautiful wallpaintings and statues that surround the buildings and in order to take some pictures. Last stop, Lycabetous hill and the Athens balcony. Now that you have seen from close all the important sites let’s see Athens from above. Lycabetous hill is the highest point of Athens. A place with the most amazing panoramic view of Attica.
After the tour and from above you will have a great sense of how the Athenians created the city. Then we will take you back to your accommodation or other point of preference.
