A wealth of ancient treasures is packed into central Athens. On this guided morning tour, you'll uncover some of its megastars, including the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian's Arch, the Parthenon and Acropolis – and also enjoy a guided visit to the Acropolis Museum.
You'll be taken to the Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Next, follow a route steeped in history, taking in landmarks such as the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian's Arch, the Academy, the National Library and Syntagma Square – home of the Greek parliament.
Then it's on to the Acropolis, where your guide will bring to life the history behind such seminal structures as the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike – and, of course, the Parthenon. Finish the morning with a guided visit to the award-winning Acropolis Museum. It's built over an archaeological site, which can be surveyed as you enter.
