Greek Tours Packages
Together with your local True Greece guide, take a half-day tour of Athens and its most significant sights. No visit to Athens is complete without a climb up to the Acropolis ("peak of the city"), where Ancient Athenians of the 5th century BC erected the great temple dedicated to the goddess Athena - the extraordinary Parthenon. You will also see the Ancient Agora, and some of the finest structures of modern Athens, such as the Kalimarmaro Stadium, home of the first modern Olympics in 1896; the old Royal Palace and today's Parliament, with the elite unit known as the Evzones guarding the Memorial of the Unknown Soldier.
If you have chosen to include a full-day tour of Athens in your vacation package, you will have the opportunity to choose from also exploring the New Acropolis Museum, an incredible modern structure that is home to the Parthenon's famous artifacts; the National Archaeological Museum, home to the world's greatest collection of masterworks of Ancient Greece; or one of several Athens museums highlighting other aspects of Greek culture, such as the wonderful Benaki Museum.
For the even more adventurous who want to 'see it all', True Greece can arrange a guided excursion to the northern suburb of Kifissia, or southern suburbs along the Athenian Riviera, perhaps even to Cape Sounion with its famous Ancient Temple of Poseidon.
For those who prefer to take it slow and explore a city and its people by strolling through city streets, explore the city independently using your Athens True Greece Recommendations Guides, we're sure you'll find no end of fascinating diversions in Athens.
Finally, celebrate the end of your journey in Athens with a dinner at one of our recommended restaurants. You're sure to leave Athens full of wonderful memories. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
