Highlights of Athens
We start the tour from the landmark of the city, the Acropolis. We will see the temple of Nike, walk through the monumental entrance, the Propylaia, and see the Erechtheion with the famous Caryatids and the masterpiece of ancient Greek art and architecture, Parthenon. From the top of the Acropolis, we enjoy the panoramic view to other monuments, and then we walk a short distance to the Acropolis museum. The museum focuses on the Acropolis area; we see finds from the excavations at the foothills of the Acropolis, original statues from the temples, and the highlight, the breathtaking Parthenon sculptures. Next, we enjoy some free time in Plaka, the city's oldest section. We continue with a scenic drive in the city to see famous neoclassic buildings, the Old Palace with the National guards, and have a photo stop at the Old Olympic Stadium.
