The Best of Athens from Hotel

This Athens tour is the ideal way to see the best of the city. You will be amazed by all the magnificent landmarks on this comprehensive tour. See the Acropolis, the Parthenon, Hadrian's Arc, and so much more.

The tour begins at the Panathinaikos Stadium, where the first modern Olympic games took place in 1896. On the bus you will pass by the colorful Prime Minister's residence and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. This guided Athens tour will take you past St. Paul's Church, National Garden, Hadrian's Arc, Parliament, the Russian Orthodox Church, and many more historic and modern Greek landmarks.

The highlight of your day will be your tour of the Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This cultural landmark is an ancient citadel located on a high rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of many ancient structures. These structures include the Parthenon, the Dionysos Theater, the Temple of Athena Nike, and more. Walk through the Dionysos Theater to the new Acropolis Museum, which holds fascinating artifacts from Greek history.

After working up an appetite, enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant under the Acropolis (expense not included). When you finish your lunch, board the comfortable and air-conditioned bus to continue your Athens day tour. Ride along a coastal road adjacent to the Saronic Gulf. Take in the beauty of Greece as you travel through beautiful neighborhoods on your way to Cape Sounion.

There, you will spend the afternoon exploring the Temple of Poseidon. Tour the temple, which is one of the most beautiful landmarks in the world due to its magnificent location perched on a hilltop above the bright blue ocean. Built in 44 B.C., this structure contains historical and architectural significance and is the perfect photo opportunity. The tour will conclude as you return from Cape Sounion to Athens. If you are interested in seeing all that Athens has to offer, book your Athens one-day tour for an experience you'll never forget.

The Best of Athens from Hotel
November 09, 2019
The rating actually should be 4.5 as it was very good tour with only one negative comment. It was two tours combined together. We had to change buses and wait for another tour guide. Again, both tours were very good. We were picked up from the hotel in time. Both tour guides were knowledgeable and professional.
