Tour the TOP sites in Athens!

As soon as we leave from the cruise terminal we'll head towards Athens, the capital of Greece with our van or taxi (depending on how many you are).
When we reach Athens we start with an orientation tour (city drive), so I have the chance to point out to you some of the most well known parts of the historical centre of Athens.
We, then, continue by walking and climbing up to the top of the Acropolis Hill, in order to visit Parthenon, the masterpiece of the ancient greek architecture of the classical ages. The views from up there are breathtaking!
Our next stop will be the Acropolis museum. An impressive modern building which houses the portable pieces, statues and ceramics that they were revealed on the Acropolis Hill.
At the end you 'll have some free time in Plaka (old town of Athens) to have a snack or do some shopping.
The tour ends by bringing you back to the cruise terminal.
