Athens half day private tour <includes transportation>

A classic half day Athens tour, for first time visitors.

The past and the present of Athens unfolds before your eyes while we drive around the city's highlight spots and monuments like the Temple of Zeus, the Old Stadium, Syntagma square, the Parliament and the Tomb to the Unknown soldier, the Academy, the Library, and the National Gardens.

Discover the finest samples of art in the Acropolis museum galleries; walk with me to the Acropolis and let me tell you the fascinating story of the city that became the "School of Greece" and the cradle of the Western civilisation under the shade cast by Athena' s sacred olive tree.


We start our tour by visiting the Acropolis museum; we continue with the drive around the city's historical centre to see the Temple of Zeus, Old Stadium, Syntagma square, Parliament and Tomb to the Unknown soldier, Academy, Library, National Gardens. And we keep the best for last: the Acropolis monuments right at the top of the city of Athens.
