What to Expect

Our full-day private tour will take you to the most important Athens landmarks and monuments. 

Your driver will pick you up from your residence or Athens International Airport in Spata and drive you to your first stop, Lycabettus Hill.

The Athens Lycabettus Hill stands at 277 meters (745 ft) and is the highest hill of Athens. That offers a spectacular panoramic view of Athens all the way to the Saronic sea, the Acropolis Hill, the whole city of Athens and the surrounding mountains.

Our Athens day tour next stop is the UNESCO listed Acropolis Hill to admire up close the famous temples of Parthenon, Propylaea, Erechteion, Athena Nike, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Dionysus Theatre. Acropolis usually needs at least an hour.

Right across the northeast exit of Acropolis, lies Areios Pagos or Mars Hill, and this is the hill where the  Apostle Paul preached Christ’s word for the first time in Greece. Read more on our Apostle Paul Footsteps Private Tour here

The next stops are the nearby gigantic temple of Zeus and the Arch of Adrian,  the all-marble Panathenaic Stadium that hosted the first modern Olympic games in 1896, the Greek Neoclassic Parliament on historical Syntagma Square and the changing of the guards and the Athens Trilogy with the impressive Doric and Ionic columns.

Next, we will make a stop for your lunch break in a restaurant of your choice or we can suggest excellent places for your lunch.

Right after, you will visit the important Ancient Agora with the fully intact Temple of Hephestus and the impressive Attalos Stoa and the in-house museum.

After Ancient Agora, your driver will take you to the New Acropolis Museum, a world-class museum of vast proportions. The New Acropolis Museum holds the historic archaeological treasures of the Acropolis of Athens and it is a must-see for every visitor of Athens.

If there is enough time, we can take you to visit and shop at the tiny alleys of Plaka old city and the iconic Anafiotika area that takes you back when Athens was just a small village under the Acropolis!

Our Athens private tour takes you to all the Athens essential monuments in the comfort of our luxurious brand-new vehicles and with live commentary of our English-speaking professional drivers!

You will see the impressive shift change of the traditionally dressed guards (evzones) in front of the Greek parliament and the Marble Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. From there, you visit the Athens Trilogy, the Academy of Athens, the University and the National Library, wonderful neoclassical buildings.

Ancient Agora

In the heyday of ancient Athenian culture and power (roughly 500 B.C.E. to the mid-300s B.C.E.), the agora was the centre of all aspects of public life.

It was the centre of economic life and served as a bustling marketplace. The most important buildings are Stoa of Attalos, a reconstruction of the ancient building, completed in 1956 by the American School of Classical Studies and the Temple of Hephaestus, commissioned by Pericles and completed in 415 BC.

Acropolis Museum

 

The Acropolis Museum, one of the most important museums in the world, houses the findings of the Athenian Acropolis including the Parthenon friezes and the original Karytatides.

Plaka

If there is time left, you will have an hour of free time in the ancient neighbourhood of Athens close to Acropolis, named Plaka.

Plaka is full of people, music, typical restaurants “tavernas”, beautiful houses, cosy cafes and little shops with souvenirs.

You can visit Anafiotika, a small area in Plaka that reminds you of a Cycladic island.

Afterwards, we will drop you off at your residence or at the airport.
