Orange Line
Visit the Acropolis and the Parthenon.

Do not hesitate to explore the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games were held, the National Library and a little further away the National Archaeological Museum.

Blue Line - Piraeus
If you arrive by cruise you can begin your tour immediately upon disembarkation from any of the stops specifically located in the vicinity of the cruise terminal. You will marvel at the charming ports of Pasalimani, Turcolimano, the yacht marina and even "Mikrolimano", the old port of Piraeus. By combining the Orange Line with the Blue Line you will not miss out on the impressive new Acropolis Museum or the Acropolis Hill with superb views of the Parthenon.

Yellow Line - Glyfada
Begin your tour of the Athenian Riviera from the "Planetarium" stop of the Blue Line. Discover how once one of the least populated places has now become one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Greece. From the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to the largest marina, in the Mediterranean "Marina Alimou", the Yellow Line to Glyfada is a mixture of history and modernism; a combination of old-time culture and contemporary entertainment.

Vouliagmeni may have been associated with beaches, but the area is a history lesson in itself. From the Allied Forces Cemetery to the Byzantine Museum, Vouliagmeni is certainly worth visiting with Green Line. Relax on the beautiful Kavouri Oceanis beach, one of the most popular beaches in Athens. Discover Vouliagmeni Lake, the hidden treasure of Attica’s nature and have a truly natural and unique thermal spa experience.

Early in the morning you will visit Meteora, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988. In this mysterious landscape, the natural beauty is combined with the compelling presence of the eternal monasteries suspended or "meteora" on top of the huge rocks. Currently there are only six in use, five for the male and one for the female monastic community.  

On the way back to Athens, you will briefly stop at Thermopylae, where you can see the statue of the Spartan King Leonidas, famous for leading the battle against the Persians in 480 BC. In the late afternoon you will arrive in Athens, where we will drop you off at your hotel.
