About this activity
The private 6 hour tour in Athens will take you to: the Acropolis – the Parthenon – Erechtheum – Temple of Athens Nike – Plaka – Ancient Agora – Roman Agora – Hadrian’s library – Monastiraki – Temple of Hephaestus – Temple of Zeus – the Parliament – The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – Panathenian Stadium – Lycabettus Hill – the New Acropolis Museum -Hadrian’s Arch – the Ex Royal House – Kolonaki – Lycabettus Hill.

The private tour connects the ancient and modern symbols of the city and the ancient agora with the modern commercial districts of Athens. The private tour in Athens starts from the Acropolis, which is inevitably the most intriguing site in Athens. Its great advantage is that it combines the tour with a visit to the Museum of Acropolis, which gives you an overview of the monument and its remains.

The Sacred Rock of the Acropolis is the highlight of the ancient Athenian architectural style, and has become the trademark of the city of Athens since the 5th century BC. When visiting the Acropolis and its Parthenon you will see the Propylaea and the Erectheum with the Caryatids, and you will find yourself up the Sacred Hill, where you can also admire the city of Athens at its whole. The Rock of the Acropolis offers you a panoramic view of the city that stretches from the north mountains to the south shores of the sea and the port of Piraeus. After the Acropolis, the private tour will take you to Plaka, which is one of the most colorful and picturesque neighborhoods of the city, known for its lovely coffee shops and the amazing tourist shops where you can buy your memorabilia and souvenirs to bring back home.

Later on, the half day tour will take you to some of the most significant parts of the city, such as the Tomb of Unknown Soldier and the House of the Parliament at Syntagma (Constitution) Square. Driving towards the Panathenaic Stadium you will pass by the imposing Hadrian’s Arch and you will soon arrive at the Panathenaic (Kallimarmaron) Stadium that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.Then, see the Trilogy of Buildings of Athens, the Academy of Athens, the University of Athens and the National Library that stand out due to their amazing architecture. One of the highlights of the tour is a visit to the Museum of the Acropolis which houses the most important artifacts, statues and relics from the Parthenon and the Acropolis. It also houses the half of the marbles of the Acropolis, and the Caryatids.

The end of the half day tour will take you to the modern district of Athens called Kolonaki, and Lycabettus Hill, the tallest part of Athens that will give you the chance to take amazing pictures and admire the city once more from above.
