Description

After breakfast, we will meet at hotel Titania lobby, time 09:00, and we will start our tour of Athens with the Acropolis area. We will walk to the  Acropolis Hill, where we will see the Architectural Masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens: the Propylea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and finally “the harmony between material and spirit”, the monument that “puts order in the mind”, the Parthenon. Coming down from the Hill located to the west, we will visit the “Mars Hill” (Areopagus) where the Apostle Paul  preached Christianity to the Athenians. We continue walking through the narrow streets of Plaka (old Athens) to Monastiraki where we will have time for lunch at a picturesque local Taverna. After lunch we will continue our bus tour passing by Constitution Square (Syntagma) where we will see the memorial of the Unknown Soldier next to the Greek Parliament. We will continue by the Prime Minister’s residence (Mansion Maximos) guarded by the Evzones in their colorful uniform, the Panathenaic Stadium (Kallimarmaro) where the first Olympic Games of modern times were held in 1896. We will see the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Hadrian’s Arch before we visit the place where at last the statues found their home and admire the wonders of the classical era, the fascinating New Acropolis Museum. Our day tour will continue driving along the coastal road, passing the wonderful beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni & Varkiza to the most southern point of Attica. On the way we will have a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf and the little islands offshore before we arrive at Cape Sounio where we will visit the white marble pillars of the Temple of Poseidon with its unique Ocean view. Early in the evening we will return to the hotel Titania. Estimated arrival time around 20:00.
