This tour will expose you to Athens in various ways, encompassing the ancient world to which the city is deeply rooted in. Your adventure begins as our licensed tour guide meets you in a luxury car. Acropolis, the cornerstone of Western civilization, will give you a first glance of ancient Greece, before you visit the Panathenaic Stadium, home to the first modern Olympic Games. As the journey continues, you will reach the beating heart of Athens in Constitution Square. Seeing the Presidential Guard (Evzoni) in traditional dress, protecting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a unique experience that will be engraved in your memory.

Time for a change of pace as you will trade the musket for the pen at the Academy of Athens, a testament to the beauty of neoclassical architecture. An integral part of the Athenian Trilogy (which also includes the National Library and the University of Athens), it is strongly connected to the Academy of Plato, the contemporary version was established in 1926.  

Sightseeing is always enriching, but now it’s time to satisfy your other senses.
