    Itinerary

    Day 1Arrival at Athens

    Arrive at Athens, a magical city. The city with the most glorious history in the world is worshipped by gods and people. The enchanting capital of Greece has always been the birthplace of civilization. It is the city where democracy was born and most of the wise men of ancient times. The most important civilization of ancient world flourished in Athens and relives through superb architectural masterpieces. Upon your arrival at Athens, you will be met by our representative and transferred to your hotel. Check-in and relax for some time. Rest of the day is free for you to explore this magical city on your own

    Day 2Full day Athens City Tour

    This tour gives you an opportunity to observe the striking contrasts that make Athens such a fascinating city. Firstly, the famous Acropolis Hill & Museum where you can admire the elegant temple of the Parthenon and the modern Acropolis Museum that houses impressive statues and artifacts of the ancient Greek civilisation.

    Another idea would be to stroll along Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, a pedestrianized street adjacent to the south slope of the Acropolis where you can also admire the ancient Theatre of Dionysus and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. The heart of the city beats around the Constitution Square, in Greek Syntagma, the meeting point for both tourists and locals. If you are lucky, you may witness the Change of Guards ceremony. Your tour will not be complete unless you visit Panathenaic Stadium or Kallimarmaro as Greeks call it.

    After exploring downtown Athens, your driver will escort you to the most spectacular viewing point of the Lycabettus Hill, the highest hilltop of modern Athens. Surrounded by pine trees and with a breathtaking panoramic view of the city that stretches all the way to the Port of Piraeus, it is the perfect spot for taking some fantastic photos and enjoying the scenery for a few moments.

    After descending the Lycabettus Hill, your Welcome driver will set course for Cape Sounion, the southern-most tip of the Attica peninsula. Located approximately 65 kilometers outside of the center of Athens, it is a relaxing seaside drive along the western coastline with a view of the Aegean sea. The cosmopolitan town centers of Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni are all buzzing with bars, cafes and seaside restaurants that attract people from all over Athens. The Athenian Riviera is the perfect location for you to have dinner or a cup of coffee while looking out over the Aegean sea and enjoying the Mediterranean sea breeze. It is also home to Vouliagmeni Lake, a must-see geological phenomenon made up of thermal springs and underwater caves leading out to the sea.

    Once you have enjoyed your seaside dinner, the coastal drive continues to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. Though relatively remote compared to the city center, the majestic Temple of Poseidon is an important landmark with significant historical and cultural value for Athenians. Not only can you explore the historical monuments on site, but the Cape also offers a fantastic panoramic view of the blue Aegean sea. End your experience by enjoying the breathtaking sunset from this unique viewing point while looking out onto the Greek Islands.
