Take a short drive to Athens, the cradle of the European civilization. Drive along the neoclassical buildings of the University, Academy and Library before arriving at the Stadium laid out under Lycurgus in the 4th Century BC and rebuilt in 1896 on its original plan for the modern Olympic Games. Continue your drive towards the Acropolis. Continue on with a panoramic tour of the city, where you will view the Olympieion (the Temple of Olympian Zeus) from the 6th Century BC, one of the largest Corynthian style temples in Greek, history and Hadrianís Arch (2nd Century AD). This divided the Greek city from Hadrianís new Roman city. Arriving at Syntagma Square, see the Royal Palace, built for Otto I of Bavaria and the present day Parliament. In front of the Palace stands the Monument of the Unknown Soldier where two soldiers (Evzoni) stand guard continuously.
For twenty-five centuries, the panorama of this city is dominated by the rock of the Acropolis. Walk uphill as you follow your experienced licensed guide who will share his knowledge with you. Here you will visit the Acropolis with its principal buildings: the Propylaia, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and the magnificent Parthenon.
You will also have some free time before meeting your group again to re-embark your coach and drive back to the port of Piraeus.
If you wish to enter the Acropolis there will be an additional fee of approximately 12 euros. If you wish to walk around the acropolis and through the Placa you may do so. This will take you about 45-60 minutes; a nice walk on mostly level ground.
