Athens Full Day tour

Includes the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum, Plaka, and The Temple of Zeus, The Panathenaic Stadium built for the modern Olympics 1863.

THE ACROPOLIS: For thousands of years   the Acropolis has been the symbol of Athens, the sacred rock, the link   that connects the magnificent ancient civilization with the modern. The   Acropolis and its monuments, its history and the myths that are   connected with it are rightly the pride and the glory of this city, the   envy of all other cities in the world. There is no Greek or foreign   visitor who does not want to make the pilgrimage to the sacred rock and   absorb its magnificence and beauty. If you have never been to the   Acropolis I assure you it is a unique and unforgettable experience. On   the hill of the Acropolis you will see the masterpieces of: Parthenon,   Propylea, Temple of Athena Nike, Erechtheion & the Cariatides,   Ariopagus (Mars Hill), Herodion Theater and the Theater of Dionysus.

THE PLAKA is the oldest section of Athens. Most of the streets have been closed to automobile traffic, though you should still keep a watchful eye for a speeding motorcycle or delivery truck. At one time it was the nightclub district, but most of these closed down when the government outlawed amplified music in the neighborhood in the seventies in an effort to get rid of undesirables. The strategy was very successful and it is now an area of restaurants, Jewelry stores tourist shops, and cafes. Though it is quite commercialized it is still a neighborhood and arguably the nicest neighborhood in central Athens. Here you will enjoy up to 2 hours for your lunch and shopping.

THE TEMPLE OF OLYMPIAN ZEUS: (Olympieion): is a colossal ruined temple in the centre of Athens that was dedicated to Zeus, king of the Olympian gods. Construction began in the 6th century BC during the rule of the Athenian tyrants, who envisaged building the greatest temple in the ancient world, but it was not completed until the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD some 650 years after the project had begun. During the Roman periods it was renowned as the largest temple in Greece and housed one of the largest cult statues in the ancient world.

THE PANATHENAIC STADIUM:(Kallimarmaro): is the only major stadium in the world built entirely of white marble (from Mount Penteli). And, it is the original stadium built in the 1800s for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.
