Overview



Your private vehicle and English-speaking driver will show you the best sights of Athens.

Start from square one--your hotel lobby--and continue through Athens to Piraeus, where you'll begin your cruise.

This tour includes:
• Hotel pickup and pier dropoff
• English-speaking driver
Visit to/see:
• Syntagma Square
• House of Parliament
• Memorial to the Unknown Soldier
• National Library
• Herod Atticus Street
• Evzones
• Presidential Palace
• Panathenaic Stadium
• Temple of Olympian Zeus
• Hadrian's Arch
• Acropolis

Visit the city center and Syntagma Square, essentially the tourist core of the city. Dominated by the old Royal Palace, now the Greek Parliament (where you can see the changing of the guards every hour on the hour!), Syntagma Square is where most of the famous ancient monuments are located. Visit the House of Parliament, the Memorial to the Unknown Soldier, and the National Library.

Now drive down Herod Atticus Street, where you'll see the evzones in their picturesque uniform and the Presidential Palace. On your way to the Acropolis, you will see the Panathenaic Stadium (where the first Olympic Games of the modern era were held in 1896), the Temple of Olympian Zeus, and Hadrian's Arch.

Of course, you can't miss the Acropolis, the trademark of Athens. The ancient "high city" is topped with marble temples dedicated to the city's goddess Athena, and dates back to the Late Bronze Age. Following your climb to the top, you'll be rewarded with a visit to the architectural masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens: the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion, and, finally, the Parthenon.
