On this tour you will learn the long history of Greek shipping heritage and hear the success stories of Aristotle Onassis and Stavros Niarchos, the world famous shipping tycoons. You will marvel the brand new and highly praised Niarchos Foundation premises, which will soon be home to the new opera house and national library.  At Faliron you will stroll by the sea and admire Averof, the early 20th century battleship that participated in both World Wars and a replica of an ancient Greek trireme.
