Combine the sights of modern Athens with sites of historical importance on a 3.5-hour morning or afternoon tour by luxury coach. With an expert guide on hand to explain all the top Athens attractions, the tour passes Constitution Square and Panathenaic Stadium — home of the first modern Olympic Games. Explore the Acropolis of Athens on foot, and discover famous monuments such as the Pantheon. If you’re eager to see more, book the morning tour and upgrade to include an entrance ticket to Athens Acropolis Museum.

Meet your guide in central Athens and head off on your tour around the Greek capital by luxury air-conditioned coach. Pass the must-see Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that stands in front of Parliament House on Constitution Square, and see the Presidential Mansion that served as the Royal Palace before the country’s monarchy was abolished in 1974.

Watch out for Panathenaic Stadium — site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 — and then relax as your coach drives along Panepistimiou, home to Athens’ National Library and the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens, known locally as ‘Mitropoli.’

After seeing the highlights of modern Athens, step back in time with a tour of the city’s past. See the Roman Temple of Olympian Zeus, and then stop at Athens’ crowning glory: the Acropolis of Athens. Built on a rocky hill towering above the city, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed acropolis comprises a cluster of ancient buildings that once collectively acted as a fortress. Each building was created to reflect the splendor and wealth of Athens during the 5th century.

Highlights of the acropolis include the famous Parthenon temple, Propylaea gateway and Temple of Athena Nike, a monument built to represent Athens’ ambition as the most powerful Greek city. After spending time at leisure at the acropolis, make your way back to the start point by coach.

Morning Tour plus Museum: (5 hours)
Upgrade from the morning tour to include an entrance ticket to Athens Acropolis Museum, and head inside the intriguing attraction after your tour finishes. Head inside to browse the museum’s artifacts and relics independently, and see statues from the Archaic period alongside some 4,000 other exhibits. The Parthenon Hall is also a highlight, and it complements your earlier visit to the temple with historical facts.

Your entrance ticket allows you to spend as long as you like inside the museum, however most people find two hours (after your 3.5-hour tour finishes) to be sufficient.

With this Athens Super Saver, combine two best-selling tours for a two-day immersion in Athens and Delphi. See top sights on a half-day tour of Athens, from the Acropolis to Omonia Square. Then take a full-day trip to explore the historic sites of classical Greece at Delphi, considered the center of the earth and the universe in ancient times. Each tour takes place on a separate day, and it’s your choice whether you do the Athens half-day tour on Day 1 and visit Delphi on Day 2, or vice versa. Plus, receive a discount by booking these two tours together!

Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour (Morning on Day 1 or Day 2 – your choice):

Your guided half-day tour of Athens combines the city’s historic and modern sights, from central Omonia Square to the changing of the guard in Constitution Square. After taking a drive with your guide past the Panathenian Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, travel into the past at Athens’ crowning beauty, the Acropolis.

Tour the Parthenon, Athena Nike temple and beautiful Porch of the Maidens, and learn more about the Acropolis and its ruins at the new Acropolis Museum.

Delphi Day Trip (Day 1 or Day 2 – your choice):

More temples await at the archaeological site of Delphi, dedicated to the worship of Apollo and site of the legendary Delphic oracle in classical times. Leave Athens by air-conditioned coach for the drive to Delphi, stopping briefly to stretch your legs in the town of Levadia, a small central Greek town near legendary Mt Parnassus. Leaving Levadia, continue to the winter-time ski resort town of Arachova on the slopes of Mt Parnassus. While taking a stroll around Arachova, note the traditionally hand-woven flokati rugs for sale in the town’s shops.

Next stop is the famous archaeological site of Delphi, where you’ll take a guided tour of the legendary ruins, first excavated in 1882. Ancient Delphi was the site of a sanctuary to Apollo, and home to the Greek world’s most important oracle, who received prophecies from the gods.

Your tour includes a visit to Delphi’s most important building, the ancient Temple of Apollo, now a poignant collection of pillars and steps, and once housing an eternal flame. Follow the sacred way to the restored Athenian Treasury, a classic temple design with Doric columns.

You’ll also visit the site’s stadium, where musical competitions and the Pythian Games, similar to the games of Olympia, were held every four years; the first games took place here in 776 BC.

While in Delphi, you’ll also visit the site’s archaeological museum, filled with statues of athletes, gold and ivory from the site, along with its famous piece, the bronze statue of a charioteer.

Your tour includes a Greek lunch in the modern-day town of Delphi, which neighbors the archeological site.
