Excursion Itinerary: Athens Afternoon Sightseeing Tour With Acropolis

VISITING THE CITY AND THE ACROPOLIS IN THE AFTERNOON
VISITING THE CITY AND THE ACROPOLIS IN THE AFTERNOON

Built in the Attica Basin, Athens, the modern capital and largest city of Greece, lies between Mount Parnitha, Pentelikon, Ymittos and the Saronic Gulf. The importance of its geographical position and its mild climate were the main reasons that the first inhabitants chose to settle here. The citizens of Athens, together with their rich history, produced a brilliant civilization and thus made an incomparable contribution of universal value to mankind.

Your road trip begins at 13:15 hrs., with a panoramic tour of the main monuments of Athens. Among the monuments and places of interest, you will have the chance to visit the famous Syntagma or Constitution Square, National Gardens, the Presidential Residence, Hadrian's Arch, the Greek Parliament, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where the Evzone soldiers change guard in honor of those who have fallen in battle. Last but not least, you will see the University, Academy and National Library, or simply the Trilogy of Athens, which all have recently been restored.

The first stop will be at the old Panathenaic Stadium, or as the Greeks call it, Kalimarmaro (good marble). This was the site of a major event in antiquity known as Panathenaic Games, in honor of Athena the patron of the city and in modern times the place where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896. You will then continue towards the Temple of Olympian Zeus, which was completed by Emperor Hadrian many centuries later, showing his passion for Greek culture.

The "main course" of the day will be your visit to the "sacred rock", the famous Acropolis and symbol of Athens. Here you will appreciate some of the most well-known Monuments of Classical Greece, such as the Parthenon, Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea.

Greca Tip: You can either choose to return to your hotel, continue exploring the historic neighborhood of Plaka or combine this tour with a visit to the New Acropolis Museum, one of the five most celebrated museums in the world owing to its cultural, sculptural and archaeological heritage.
