Athens - Full day exploring the city
The second day of your delightful trip will take you around Athens' treasures.
Your private English-speaking guide will lead you to Acropolis Hill, following your hotel pick-up on foot. Admire the sacred hill's many incredible monuments, such as the famous Parthenon, the Temple of Nike, the Propylaea, and the sacred Erechtheion, before walking the short distance to the Acropolis Museum, where you will have the opportunity to delight in exhibits and artifacts nearly 3.000 years old and learning the history behind each of them from your deeply knowledgeable guide.
Next up comes the exploration of Plaka and its emblematic buildings of neoclassical architecture. Snap as many pictures as you can in this picturesque “island-like" neighborhood in the heart of Athens, and learn about the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates that lies on its premises!
Following a much-needed break, hop on your luxury vehicle to bass by Athens' most important landmarks, including the Library of Hadrian, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the multicolored Monastiraki, with its vivid flea market, and the emblematic Syntagma Square, home to the Greek Parliament since the establishment of the new Greek state. Last but not least, take in the green haven in the middle of the city, the National Garden, and drive-by Panathenaic Stadium, where the 1st modern Olympic Games took place! View on map
