Extended City Tour of Athens
This fabulous tour, lasting about 8 hours, starts off by seeing the magnificent Parthenon at the Acropolis, built in the 5th century B.C.
Other highlights you will see and visit in Athens are: St. George Lycabettus - the highest point in the city with its panoramic view; the Panathiniakos Stadium - where the first modern day Olympics were held in 1896; the first university and academy of Athens; the changing of the guards at the President's Palace; and the Temple of Zeus.
A trip to Athens is not complete without a stroll in the citys' oldest neighborhood, Plaka, with its atmospheric maze of shop-filled streets. There you will also see the Roman Agora, Tower of Winds and Ceramiko.
The National Archaeological Museum OR the New Acropolis Museum is also included in this tour. Both are ranked among the world's finest! Enjoy a delicious lunch at a taverna NOT visited by the tourists. There you will be able to try a wide variety of Greek dishes at very reasonable prices. Many of my clients have told me that this was the best meal of ther trip!
The price for this tour is 230 euros (2,160 Yuan) for up to 4 people and does not include entrance fees to the archaeological sites or food.
I would meet you at the port of Piraeus if you are arriving by cruise ship OR at your hotel in Athens.
