The tour starts upon your arrival at the Athens International Airport or your disembarkation at the port of Piraeus. You can join either a 4, 11, or 15 seaters private vehicle, depending on the size of your group. After a short drive through the picturesque quarters of the town, we will be reaching the city center. The tour basically starts from the Acropolis, which is by default the highlight of the city. It is considered an architectural masterpiece of the 5th century BC and one of the most important sites in the world. During the visit to the Acropolis, you can see the Propylaea, the Erectheum, the Temple of Athena Nike (Victory), and the Parthenon which will definitely awe you. The Temples of the Acropolis are dedicated to Goddess Athena who is also the Patron Goddess of the city, and of course, Zeus, who was the father of all Gods. Continue Our Athens Private Tour After the Acropolis, the tour will continue toward the Temple of Zeus, which is one of the most imposing temples in Greece; it is also the largest temple of the Corinthian style that stands. Almost at the front of the Temple stands the Hadrian’s Arch, which was dedicated by the Athenians to the Roman Emperor Hadrian, separating the old city from the modern. The half-day tour to Athens continues with a visit to the famous buildings of the Parliament Building, the Ex-Royal Palace, the National Library, the Academy, and the University of Athens. Along the way, you will also see the Panathenaic Stadium, which hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Today, special events are still held there. The driver will then bring you to the more modern part of the city, towards Kolonaki and the hill of Lycabettus, which is the higher hill in Athens and offers splendid views of the entire city. After the end of the tour in Athens, we will take you to your cruise ship at the Port of Piraeus or to the Athens Airport to catch your flight back home.
