This tour begins with a drive past some of Athens' most famous sights such as the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the largest in ancient Greece, taking over 700 years to build, the Old Palace and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier infront of the Parliament where you can witness the changing of the guards.

Next, the tour will take you to the Panathenian Olympic Stadium where the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. From here, you will continue on to the Plaka, one of the oldest districts of the city. Bordered by the Acropolis to the south and the Ancient Agora to the west, the Plaka was built on top of the residential areas of the ancient town of Athens and  has a little of everything from the ancient ruins of a Roman forum, the Greek Agora, and Byzantine influenced churches, to restored 19th century neoclassical homes and modern day stores, boutiques and cafes sprinkled throughout.

This district is home to the New Acropolis Museum and the Greek Folk Art Museum. If you want to go shopping instead you will find Greek souvenirs, clothing as well as jewelry shops. You must try the  pita-souvlaki or gyro, a popular Greek fast food consisting of small pieces of meat and sometimes vegetables grilled  on a skewer.

We will recommend where to go and enjoy a leisurely meal, where the locals have lunch, which is almost never on the major streets, but usually on smaller side streets.  Alternatevily you can try out the Plaka, a typical experience area for Athens dining out.

For guests who wish to visit the Acropolis,  kindly be advised that guests must be able to walk approximately 1,5 miles over steep inclines, 200 steps and uneven surfaces making this site not accessible to wheelchairs.  For security reasons  some waiting time may be involved.
