Today you will have the chance to go 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 and also Hadrian’s Arc. When its time to see the Panathenaic Statium we will make a short stop so you have a stroll around and fill up your cameras with some fascinating sites that are infront of you. Panathenaic Stadium is where the first Olympic games took place back in 1896. Then as we finally arrive in ACROPOLIS it will be time to visit Propylae, Temple of Athena Nike, Parthenon, and Erechtheion.
Our day will continue for visit around a museum by taking a pleasant short stroll that will take us by Herodion and Dionysos Theatre til we reach 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. There is a little cafe just outside where you can take a short rest before continuing through the journey that the museum offers.
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.
