Tour description

Welcome to Athens! The beautiful capital of Greece. Many archaeological and historical sites from the 5th century BC, including the Acropolis, predominate wherever you look.


During the tour, we will walk around some of the most characteristic landmarks of the city centre.
We will pass by the Acropolis Museum and the Acropolis Hill. We will have a stopover at the Herodion Ancient Theatre, then we will make a U-turn and head toward the Columns of Zeus Olympian.
Afterwards, we will visit Zappeion Hall and the National Gardens to continue to the Houses of Parliament. There we will pay homage to the monument of the unknown soldier, where the change of guard occurs every hour.
Before closure, we will pass by the complex of the three most famous historical buildings, the National Academy, the University, and the National Library of Greece.


If there is still time, we can visit the vibrant area of Monastiraki, where street artists and baskers paint with their happy colours the ruins of the Ancient Agora Site.
During the tour, I will be happy to answer all your questions. I would love to share with you all about my culture, as well as the best-kept secrets that even locals don't know about. 


I await for you so together we can create the best memories of my city that you will treasure forever!
