Let’s take a glance at the most important sights of the tour:
Acropolis and Acropolis Museum, a universal symbol of the classical civilization, is situated on a rocky hill. It is the greatest architectural and artistic complex of monuments delivered by Greek Antiquity to the world.
Parthenon, an enormous temple devoted to the goddess Athena, dominates among other impressive buildings all built in the second half of the fifth century BC.
Ancient Agora, the “marketplace” located to the northwest of the Acropolis, was the center of the ancient city, the heart of public life. There, ancient citizens used to buy and sell, meet each other and talk. You will see temples, a concert hall and long stoas where citizens walked discussing politics and philosophy.
Theater of Dionysus, situated on the south side of the Acropolis, is one of the most important of the Greek theaters and the birthplace of Greek Tragedy.
Temple of Zeus is impressive for the sheer size of its 104 Corinthian columns of which 15 remain. Although it began to be built in 515 B.C. by the tyrant Pisistratus, it was not completed until the 2nd century by the Roman emperor Adrian.
Plaka (old city), in the shadow of the sacred rock of the Acropolis, is the most romantic neighborhood of Athens. Tourists stay speechless because of the charming scenery: cobblestone streets, architecture of old houses like being on a Greek island. There you will find souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes.
Panathinaic stadium (Kallimarmaro) is located on the site of an ancient stadium, where “Panathinea”, the greatest festivities in ancient Athens, took place. In recent history it is directly connected to the Modern Olympic Games as from their revival in 1896. It is also the place from where the Olympic flame sets up its journey to the cities of the Olympic Games.
