What to Expect
See the ancient city of Athens and travel, like the Greeks might have years before, amidst the scrubbed-white remains of Athens' icons: the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, the Tomb of the Unknown solider and many more. With the services of a professional guide to enrich and enliven your date with one of the most historically significant cities in the world, you'll spend half a day getting in touch with the past.
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.
