Overview

From being the hot seat of one of the most glorious civilisations in the world to being one of the best spots for street art in the world (just stay a little observant and we promise you’ll be thrilled by the incredible number of graffiti and murals that adorn the city), Athens is a grand vision of humanity in every sense. This private tour of Athens will sweep you back in time to experience the illustrious history of this city with a visit to the majestic Parthenon and the exquisite Acropolis Museum.

Your drive through the city is a fascinating one with our first stop being the Panathenaic Stadium which hosted the first modern day Olympic Games way back in 1896. The journey continues through the heart of the city, passing the Greek Parliament, the Royal Palace, the famous Syntagma Square and of course the popular Evzone (Presidential) guards in their amber fustanella. You can also catch sight of the stately Zappion Conference Centre in the National Gardens of Greece, the towering Arch of Hadrian, the stunning ruins of Olympieion, the pristine Tomb of the Unknowns. Your visual treat continues with the pretty Numismatic Museum, the Catholic Cathedral, and spectacular statues of Athena and Apollo guarding the Athenian Trilogy of National Library, University of Athens and Academy.

Arriving at the epochal remains of the great Acropolis, you can explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site and soak in the breath taking presence of this legendary citadel - the symbol of the dawn of civilisation. A magical excursion through this architectural wonder will lead you to the ravishing monuments dotting the site, including the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Porch of Maidens, the Erechtheion, the Herodion and of course the famed Dionysus Theatre. Our final halt for the day is the charming Acropolis Museum housing a plethora of archaeological discoveries from the Acropolis, such as votive, artefacts of everyday life, archaic statues, Caryatids as well as the Parthenon hall with displays from the pediments, the metopes and the frieze. We guarantee time comes to a standstill on this tour!
