About The Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour:
If you're looking for a brief yet fun overview of central Athens then this comprehensive half-day tour has everything you need to get started. Tick multiple attractions off your bucket list and also receive entry to the Acropolis. Highlights include the Old Royal Palace, Parliament, the Tomb of the Unknown Solider and the Propylaea - official entrance to the Acropolis.
The Acropolis is undoubtedly Greece's most famous historical site and has the honour of being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Propylaea, which makes for a great backdrop for a photo is unique in that it incorporates Ionic and Doric architectural styles.
If you're a self confessed sports fanatic or history buff you'll relish the opportunity to visit the world's first modern Olympic stadium. The Panathenaic Stadium, which hosted the Olympic Games in 1896 was constructed out of white marble, and is every bit as impressive nowadays as it was at the end of the 19th century.
During this half-day tour you'll also have the opportunity to snap a few pictures at the Zappeion and Temple of Zeus. Both of these attractions are located in the picturesque National Gardens.
Each step of the way is led by a professional English speaking guide who'll provide fascinating historical accounts of each landmark.
