Explore the best spots in Athens, one of the oldest civilizations in the world, with this half day tour of the city that showcases the treasures of both Ancient Greece and modern Athens! Begin the tour with a visit to the Panathenaic Stadium, the stage of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, where you can almost hear the loud cheering as you take photos around the area. Admire the architecture of the Zappeion, with its bright yellow color and stunning Grecian columns, as well as the remains of the Temple of Olympian Zeus, a formal colossal temple in the center of Athens with sixteen remaining columns. Marvel at the neoclassical beauty of the Athens Trilogy as you pass by the University of Athens, the Academy of Athens, and the National Library of Greece. The tour ends with a stop at the Parthenon and the Acropolis Museum, located in the Athenian Acropolis, an ancient citadel located on a rock outcrop above the city of modern Athens.
