Your first stop will be at the Panathinaikos Stadium, the location of the first modern Olympic games, which took place in 1896. On the way to the Acropolis you will be able to catch a glimpse of the Greek Parliment, seeing the Evzoni guards decked in amber tunics. You'll also have the chance to see many of the city's other famous sites, such as the Temple of Zeus and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. At the Acropolis, you will visit the monumental marble gates of the Propylae, plus the Temples of Athena, Nike and the Parthenon. You will also see the famous Porch of Maidens at the Temple of Erectheion. The last stop is the Acropolis Museum. It is home to a multitude of archaeological finds from the Acropolis.
