Meet your tour guide and begin your tour with a visit to the Panathinaiko Stadium, an arena built out of pure marble that hosted the first international Olympic Games in 1896. You will then head to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a cenotaph dedicated to Greek troops who lost their lives in the war. Proceed to the Greek Parliament building and the Presidential Palace, the seat of modern Greek politics. Other intriguing sights on the walking tour include the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Athens Trilogy, Hadrian’s Arch, and St. Paul’s Church.

The Acropolis, one of the country’s most iconic UNESCO World Heritage sites, will be the final highlight of the walking tour. Marvel at the imposing vertical columns designed and put in place to serve as a citadel in the 5th century BC! Explore the four galleries inside the Acropolis Museum and learn about Greek history and how its culture evolved over the centuries. From artifacts that served as everyday objects for the ancient Greeks to exquisite portraits and sculptures, the Acropolis Museum has an assortment of fascinating exhibits.
