Your guide who is highly educated in Greek history and archaeology will unlock the secrets of this fascinating ancient city. The tour continues into the nearby Acropolis Museum where you can take in this spectacular modern structure, that was designed by the acclaimed architect Bernard Tschumi, offering uninterrupted views overlooking the Acropolis with glimpses of an ancient city below, that can be seen through glass-paneled floors. Consistently rated as one of the best museums in the world, you will be guided through must-see artifacts including the original Caryatids from the Erechtheion and the giant pediments that once formed part of the Parthenon.

After you’ve explored these two significant attractions, it’s time for a well-deserved break. Your guide will give you some lunch recommendations according to what you feel like on the day.

You’ll visit Hadrian’s Arch and the colossal columns of the Temple of Olympian Zeus. The second half of your tour moves to a modern chapter in Athens’ history at the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympics were held in 1896. You’ll walk through the gorgeous grounds of the National Gardens and see the Changing of the Guards in front of Hellenic Parliament, that is synonymous with Athens.

Additional highlights include walking through the picturesque area of Anafiotika at the base of the Acropolis, taking in the white-washed houses and island-like atmosphere, before moving on to explore the small streets of Plaka and Monastiraki Square. The tour ends at the Lysicrates Monument in Plaka which is surrounded by cafes and shops for further independent exploration and is a short distance from the Acropolis metro station.
