The Shore Excursion Description

Enjoy a comprehensive city tour that combines main landmarks and sites of Athens. We begin from the contemporary heart of Athens, Syntagma Square. Your guide will explain the modern history of the city, as we pass by the impressive building of the Greek Parliament, the Presidential Guard in their traditional colourful uniform and the memorial Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

We drive by numerous elegant neoclassical buildings, including the President’s Residence, a former Royal Palace, to reach the Panathenaic Stadium that held the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. After a small stop we drive by the classical temple of Olympian Zeus, the Hadrian's Arch, the National Library, the Academy, the University of Athens and the Catholic Cathedral. You will be amazed by the rich heritage of Athens and the unique combination of its ancient and contemporary faces.

We continue to the Acropolis, a UNESCO world heritage monument, and the eternal symbol of democracy, education and inspiration. Your guide will explain the history of the Golden Age of Athens as you visit the architectural masterpieces the Propylea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and finally the Parthenon, the one of the world’s most famous landmark monuments dedicated to the goddess Athena.

Our next stop is the Acropolis Museum. Besides a collection of 4.000 artefacts, this museum has a unique modern design that incorporates excavations, visible through a glass floor, and offers a breath-taking panoramic view to the Acropolis.
