Day 1
Arrival in Athens
Welcome to Athens!
You will be met, on arrival and transferred to your hotel in Athens. Time at leisure to discover Athens! Redolent with history and mythology, Athens is a vibrant city, enlivened by bustling outdoor cafes, pedestrian streets that wind through the city's ancient sites and its fair share of urban eccentrics, a city full of contrasts.

Day 2
Athens city tour - private guided tour.

Enjoy a morning wonderful morning learning all about ancient Athens.
Starting from your hotel, the first photo stop is at the exquisite Panathenian stadium. Built on the site of the ancient Athenian stadium, entirely from marble, for the first modern Olympic Games of 1896. It is very impressive and well worth a stop.
After the brief stop you will set off towards the Temple of Zeus, a colossal ruined temple that was dedicated to Zeus, king of the Olympian gods. The remains of this once great temple still inspire awe to the visitors of the site.
Continuing onwards via the national gardens for a brief stop outside the Greek parliament. The traditionally dressed Evzones stand guard outside the building; the changing of the guards is fun to see and get a feeling for Greek modern history. Your driver will be waiting for you to take you to the majestic Acropolis.
Next is the sight that’s sure to be a highlight on any visitor’s list: the Acropolis of Athens. You will be dropped off at the foot of the pedestrian road leading to the site. It is a gentle uphill stroll to the city’s famous ancient citadel. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the acropolis is home to several incredible buildings that date back to the days of Ancient Greece. See the Parthenon, Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion and Temple of Athena Nike, a monument built to represent Athens’ ambition as the most powerful Greek city. The buildings on the Acropolis are considered by many as the most impressive architectural feats of the ancient times.
Concluding your visit to the Acropolis it is a short walk (5-10 minutes, downhill) to the Acropolis Museum. Opened in 2009, the new museum looks on to the Acropolis and features amazing displays. The artifacts are situated in such a way so as that the guests can actually understand and envision what the Parthenon actually looked like in antiquity. It is considered one of the most beautifully situated museums in the world. This dazzling modernist museum at the foot of the Acropolis' southern slope showcases its surviving treasures still in Greek possession.


Rest of the day at leisure.
