If you are vacationing in Athens and only have a short time, we suggest our half day tour of the Favorite Athens highlights. http://www.archaeologous.com/tours/27/half-day-tour-favorite-highlights/. This private sightseeing tour includes one of our licensed guides (optional), A/C vehicle and driver. We take our private groups to the magnificent Parthenon, Temple of Nike, Temple of Athena, Erechtheion, Carytids (statues) and the Propylaea atop the ‘sacred rock’ the Acropolis. You are given extensive time to take many photos and to soak in the history of this one of a kind place. Many of our groups are having family reunions, college reunions, honeymoons so its a treasured memory. If you have any questions go to: email@example.com.
You also will be taken to the Plaka which is a labyrinth of cobble stoned alleys filled with shops, tavernas and cafes. Hold on to your wives. It’s really tempting and you, like many others, might find all your Athens souvenirs and gifts from this one spot.
To top it off we drive you around for photo opportunities of the ancient and modern archaeological sites including: the Temple of Olympian Zeus (tallest temple in ancient Greece),
Hadrian’s Arch, the historic Olympic Stadium and the Parliament Building where the Evzones guards watch over the tomb of the unknown soldier. Since it’s YOUR private tour, you can tell us you’d like to stay longer or skip something entirely. This fun tour runs approx 4 hours and is a great way if you only have a short time to truly get a feel of the greatness of ancient Greece.
