Enjoy and make this ride the highlight of your trip! Sightseeing in Athens with a stunning view of the Acropolis is guaranteed to make your day. What is fascinating about this ancient citadel, is that it contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon.

After the Acropolis, you will head towards the Temple of Olympian Zeus, which houses the renowned statue of Zeus - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - by way of Hadrians Arch and from there, you will visit the Panathenaic Stadium where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896, and it is the only stadium in the world built entirely of marble.

Next, you will drive alongside the National Garden, where you may see the changing of the guard (Euzones) in front of the old palace, which is today the Parliament House located above the central square of Athens. It is in the National Gardens where you will see the Zappeion, a building used for meetings and ceremonies, both official and private, and previously used during the 1896 Summer Olympics as the main fencing hall.

After exploring Greece like a local would finish your enjoyable experience by racing with your family or friends through the Panathenaic Stadium, riding the fantastic Trikke Electric vehicles. Without a doubt, the most exciting way to end the end.
