Meet your guide at Syntagma Station, where your tour starts. The station, and nearby area, is home to a collection of archaeological exhibits including ancient grave stones, an aqueduct from the 5th century, pottery, a 2,000-year-old beehive and an ancient mosaic.

After admiring the artifacts, your guide will introduce you to the Greek Parliament House, formerly a palace. Stop for photos by the stately structure, and then take a stroll through the historical part of the city. Continue strolling through the streets, seeing historical landmarks such as the Zeus Temple alongside other fine architecture. A leisurely paced 10-minute walk up the pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou leads to the Acropolis of Athens, crowned by the Parthenon with its spectacular views over the city below. On the way to the acropolis you will also see Dionysious Sanctuary, Philopapos Hill, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and Mars Hill.

The tour finishes at the acropolis' summit, where your guide will offer some tips for other places to see independently in Athens.

Our tour was wonderful! Very informative and interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable and courteous. He was cognizant to the heat of the day and would try to get the group into the shade as much as possible which was appreciated. Highly recommended!
