This tour gives you an opportunity to observe the striking contrasts that make Athens such a fascinating city. Our
expert guides will take you to see the Panathenaic Stadium where the first Olympic Games of modern times were
held in 1896 (short stop).
Continue and pass by the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Hadrian’s Arch, the Parliament
and the memorial to the Unknown Soldier, the Academy, the University, the National Library, the Constitution
Square (Syntagma). On the Acropolis visit the Architectural Masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens: The
Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and finally «the harmony between material and spirit», the
monument that «puts order in the mind», the Parthenon.
Continue and visit the place where at last the statues found their home and admire the wonders of the classical era:
The new Acropolis museum.
After this visit follows the visit of the new Acropolis Museum, located on the ancient road that led up to the
«sacred rock» in classical times, housing every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, from the Greek Bronze
Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. A walk through its galleries is a walk through history – between the
masterpieces of the Archaic and Classical periods, but also in the ancient neighbourhoods of Athens.
