Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour - Athens, Greece

About This Tour

Duration: Flexible
Location: Athens, Greece
Product Code: 31401

Activity Details

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.

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.
