Learn all about Athens’ ancient and modern history on this half-day tour of the city. Take a trip alongside expert guides, who will knowledgeably let you in on all there is to know and more about this fascinating city, in which past and present constantly blend. First, discover the breathtaking Panathenaic Stadium, a magnificent construction erected on the remains of an ancient Greek stadium. Here you will enjoy a 15-minute photo stop (approx.) at the astonishing site where the first Olympic Games of modern times were held in 1896.
Then, as you continue, pass by the Royal Palace, the private residence of Greece’s Prime Minister. Keep a lookout for the Euzones, the Palace’s guards in their colorful uniforms! You will also be able to appreciate many incredible landmarks drenched in history, such as Hadrian’s Arch, the Greek Parliament in Syntagma Square, and Athens’ memorial to the Unknown Soldier. Also discover the beauty of world-renowned modern institutions such as the University, the National Library, and the Academy, named after the famous Academy founded by the philosopher Plato in the classical Greek era.
Last but not least, you will visit the Acropolis, an old plateau abundant with various symbols of ancient Greece, the most magnificent of which are the remains of the Parthenon. For roughly two hours, you will be able to contrast this wonder of antique architecture with its modern attaché, the New Acropolis Museum, also an aesthetically astounding construction, as is, perhaps, the whole city of Athens, or at the very least, its history. With about 90 minutes in the museum, you will have ample time to admire the timeless exhibitions.
