    What to Expect
    The tour starts from your hotel, airbnb apartment or cruise ship terminal. Cruise to the center of Athens and Syntagma Square, where you will see the Greek Parliament building and the most famous hotels in the Athens city that enclose the square.

    After, pass from Filellinon Street to see the Russian and Anglican churches. Next, drive to the Temple of Zeus, which is a visited open-air museum, part of unification of the archaeological sites of Athens. After the spectacular Temple of Zeus and its columns, stop for photos at the Panathenaic Stadium, also known as the Kallimarmaro, which hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.

    Head to Herodes Atticus Street where the office house of the Prime Minister of Greece and the office house of the President of the Republic is located. Visit the world's first building built exclusively for the Olympics Games, the Zappeion Megaron Hall, now used as a conference center. Next stop is the Tomb of Unknown Soldier in front of the Parliament of Greece, where you'll watch the changing of the guards.

    Follow Panepistimiou Street and past the Monetary Museum of Athens, the buildings of the Academy, University and National Library, known as the "Trilogy of Athens". The route continues to Stadiou Street and the neoclassical Old Parliament building, now the National Historical Museum of Greece. In front of the building stands the bronze statue of General Theodoros Kolokotronis, one of the leaders at the Greek revolution of 1821.

    Afterward, go to the Acropolis and the Temple of Parthenon. There, you will have the unique opportunity to admire the splendid monument of the Athenian state of the Parthenon Temple, built in the mid-fifth century BC to honor the goddess of Athens. Visit the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Theatre of Dionysus Elefthereus. Last, you can have a break for a coffee or shopping in The famous Plaka District, where your driver will wait for you. After that, head back to your hotel or cruise ship.

    The schedule is subjected to changes due to traffic conditions and time limitations.

    This was a great way to spend 1/2 a day seeing the highlights of Athens. Our driver was very knowledgeable, polite, professional and considerate. He spoke fluent English and was able to also hold the interest of our 2 teenagers! Thank you.
