Half Day City Tour at Athens
In our tour, we will also see the Propylaea, the main gate of the Acropolis, the Erechtheion with the six Caryatids supporting the roof of the porch, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the theatre of Dionysus, which is considered the first in the world and many more important monuments. The visit to the new Acropolis Museum is optional, although we suggest you do it and it will definitely leave you satisfied.
Then, we will head to the Panathenaic
Next, we will see the National Library of Greece, an impressive Doric-style building designed by Danish architect Theophilus Hansen. It is part of the famous Athenian Trilogy of neoclassical buildings. In the National Library, there are lush gardens and sculptures of great Greek artists, as well as statues of the Vallianos brothers.
Our next destination is the Greek Parliament. A dazzling three-story neoclassical building located right in the centre of the city. There you will be able to take photos next to the Evzones, who is the Presidential Guard with the characteristic traditional attire and you will watch the change of guard. In front of the wall that surrounds the parliament, is the monument of the Unknown Soldier. Going down, you will see Syntagma Square, the main square of Athens. The word Syntagma means Constitution. The square is surrounded by the busiest streets of the city and is a meeting point for many Athenians.
In the last hour of our tour, you will be given free time in the old neighbourhood of Plaka. There you can walk in its picturesque streets, to dine and buy souvenirs and traditional products of our country.
