What to expect

For a day devoted to an in-depth discovery of the ancient city of Athens, this tour, with its qualified guide, will take you for an all-day exploration of the best-known spots of the city.


After being picked up at your hotel, the tour will start at Panathinaiko Stadium, where the first Olympic Games took place in 1896, and then you’ll drive by Zappeion and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
