Tour pick up will be from Athens Pireaus port. Where you will go on to visit one of the oldest cities in the world and see all of its famous sites that include ancient and modern structures of Athens. The tour will then make a departure for Panathinaiko Stadium where the first Olympic Games took place back in 1896 (there will be a short stop here so you can capture some history on camera). After we have seen the Stadium we will continue on our way to explore the Prime Minister’s Residence (ex Royal Palace) which is guarded 24/7 by the Evzones that can be seen wearing very traditional infantry uniforms. As we proceed on we will pass by the Roman Temple of Olympian Zeus.
As we continue onwards we will also pass by the National Garden, Hadrian’s Arc, St.Paul’s Church, Parliament, Tomb of the unknown soldiers, Schliemann’s House(Numismatic Museum), Catolic Cathedral, Academy, University, National Library, Old Parliament, Constitution Square, Russian Orthodox Church and finally ACROPOLIS and its here that we will discover Propylae, Temple of Athena Nike, Parthenon, Erechtheion with it’s Porch of Maidens. Our day will continue for a museum tour with a pleasant short stroll that will take us by the Herodion and Dionysos Theatre in order to visit the NEW ACROPOLIS MUSEUM. This museum gives a great introduction to the Acropolis and Parthenon, and has amazing structure, and found to be a very organized exhibition and the treasures hidding away on the inside are just mind-blowing. At the end of your adventure today we will then transfer you back over to the port. We would also like to wish you a pleasant journey home and shall look forward to seeing you again on one of our many other time travelling packages.
