DescriptionDiscover both ancient and modern Athens on this tour. First, you will head to the Acropolis, which - along with its Parthenon - is the most important ancient site in the Western world. You need around one hour to visit the Acropolis and Parthenon (in high season calculate an hour and a half). After this, you will take a panoramic tour around all of Athens' most important monuments. You will have the opportunity to visit, stop, and take pictures at: the Temple of Zeus, Panathenaic Stadium, National Library, the Greek Parliament with the changing of the guards, and Ancient Agora/Roman Agora. You can also choose to stop for shopping, souvenirs, or a walk in famous areas like the Plaka old city area, the Monastiraki area, Ermou street shopping center, or Varvakeios central food market. Next, you will drive 10km south from the center of Athens to the port city of Piraeus. This is the biggest port in the Mediterranean, the hub of the Aegean ferry network, the centre of Greece’s maritime trade, and the base for its large merchant navy. Beyond its shipping offices, banks, and public buildings are a jumble of pedestrian precincts, shopping districts, and rather grungy areas. Discover the most attractive quarters of Piraeus city, like Mikrolimano little port, Marina Zeas/Pasalimani, the Peiraiki coastal area, and Kastella Hill.
