The Archaeologous’ private historical sightseeing tour http://www.archaeologous.com/tours/25/historical-day-tour-athens/ is a very popular choice for vacationers. Whether you are a student of the Bible, languages, architecture, or archaeology, this tour will educate you on the magnificence of Athens and it’s ancient glory.
When you book with Archaeologous, you can be assured that all your arrangements are well thought out leaving you the simple job of relaxing.
The first sightseeing destination is the famed Athens’s Acropolis called the ‘crowning jewel’ of the city. You and your private group are given plenty of time to walk around, rest, ask questions, take photos, and check out the panoramic views from the 250′ high Acropolis area. You will witness the “architectural masterpiece”, the Parthenon, also the Temple of Nike, Temple of Athena, the Erechtheion and the “most ancient theatre in the world”, the Theatre of Dionysus.
It seems unfair to only go to the National Archaeological Museum for only a couple of hours as it literally would take a week to digest it all. However, during our time here, you will enjoy the amazing 3-5,000 year history represented by masterpiece after masterpiece. (Photography allowed-just no flash)
Next stop is the exciting Plaka for lunchtime and shopping. This “cornucopia” of cobble stoned alleyways with cafes, souvenir shops, tavernas, mixed with Byzantine churches and views of the Ancient Agora and the Acropolis is known as the “neighborhood of the Gods”. Lunch is some of the famed Mediterranean cuisine you can write home about.
After lunch, most of our clients like to have free time to wander the alleyways, take photos, shop etc. Then back on our private vehicle for a wonderful relaxing drive around the cities modern and ancient architectural wonders. The City Highlights portion takes you to the massive Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Parliament Bldg. with the changing of the guards, the Panathenaikon Olympic Stadium, Hadrian’s Arch and more. It’s a great day in Athens.
