Full description
We start our tour by visiting the Acropolis where you will see the great monuments that were built during the classical age of Pericles and stands for 2500 years. Then by request, you can visit as well the Acropolis Museum. Continuing our tour we will see the Panathenaic Stadium where the first modern Olympics took place in 1896 and it's the only Stadium in the World that is built entirely of marble. In the past, at the same location, the Athenians were celebrating the Panathinaia, a religious festival honoring the goddess Athena. After we see the changing of the guards at the Parliament building and the tomb of the unknown soldier. Then we head to the Athens trilogy to see 3 neoclassical buildings such as the Academy-University and National Library, as well as the statues of Apollo, Athena, Socrates, and Plato. Then we will drive up to Lycabettus hill to see the panoramic view of the city, 267 meters high from the level of the sea. Passing by the temple of Zeus we will stop to see it and Hadrian's Arch, builded in 1st century AD. Then, we drive to the south suburbs of Athens, passing by the Athenian Riviera, on our way we will stop for breathtaking pictures. In the beautiful area of Anavissos we will stop at a local restaurant for lunch next to the sea, having seafood. After lunch, we reach the Cape Sounion and we visit the temple of Poseidon. Finally we drive back to Athens, on our way we will have a short stop at Vouliagmeni Lake.
