A treasure trove of history, mythology and grandiose monuments which sit high on everyone’s bucket list, Athens is truly a dream destination. This private tour of Athens delves right into the heart of it’s incredible heritage with the iconic Acropolis and gives you a real taste of Grecian culture.
A luxury pickup in a Mercedes taxi is available right from your hotel, taking you across to the city centre where you can see the Syntagma or Constitution Square, the House of Parliament and the Memorial to the Unknown Soldier - showcasing Greece’s political lineage. You will also catch sight of the fascinating Evzones in their traditional uniforms as well as the Presidential Palace while we drive you through Herod Atticus Street. The impeccable Hadrian’s Arch stands right between the Acropolis and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, which you can make a quick visit to if you want. The Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896, is another significant piece of modern history that you can make a short stop at.
Then comes the part you’ve been waiting for - the magnificent ancient citadel of Acropolis, a reminder of Greece’s glorious past. Standing tall on a rocky outcrop, the remains of this ancient wonder dating back to the fourth millennium BC is sure to take your breath away. Explore this incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the stunning Parthenon - temple of Goddess Athena - with the monumental gates or Propylaea, and the beautiful Temple of Erechtheion with the spectacular Porch of Maidens. You can take your time to stroll around these ravishing ruins and soak in the inimitable aura of solemnness and wonder enveloping this picturesque attraction. It is not just a symbol of Greece’s progress over the millennia but also living beacon of how far civilisation as a whole has come - a sensation that cannot be invoked anywhere else!
