After being picked up from your centrally located Athens accommodation, your full-day tour will begin with a stop at Panathinaikos Stadium, the location of the first modern Olympic Games, which were held there in 1896. Pass by the Prime Minister's residence and the former Royal Palace, both of which are still guarded by Evzone soldiers with colorful costumes. You will travel by the historically noteworthy Zappion structure, which is now a conference and exposition center, before arriving at the Temple of Olympian Zeus, which was completed in 131 A.D.
The route continues via the National Gardens to Hadrian's Arch and then the Parliament. You'll pass the Russian Orthodox Church, Constitution Square, the Old Parliament, the National Academy, and the National Library on your route there. Enjoy the Acropolis, which was constructed in the fifth century B.C. Be sure to see the Parthenon, the Propylaea Gateway, the Temple of Athena Nike, and the Erechtheum with its renowned Porch of Maidens. The Herodion and Dionysos theaters are passed by on the way to the new Acropolis Museum, which is reached after a short, enjoyable stroll. The museum houses more than 4,000 artifacts from the Acropolis site in addition to displays from the Greek Bronze Age, the Roman, and Byzantine eras.
