EXTENDED ATHENS - 3 Days - 2 Nights
DAY 1 : ARRIVAL IN ATHENS
We recommend a midday arrival in Athens. Upon your arrival at El. Venizelos Int’l airport, after clearing customs, you’ll be met by our representative for your private transfer to your centrally located hotel, where you will stay for the next two nights. After check-in, time free for relaxation.
Leave the hotel at 7pm for a walk around the Acropolis hill (night view), passing by the picturesque neighborhoods of Thission and Monastiraki (flea market).
Tonight you will have the chance to taste the traditional Greek cuisine , at a restaurant on the foots of Acropolis.
DAY 2 : ATHENS (Sightseeing Tour)
The striking contrast between breathtaking monuments of a glorious past and modern elegant structures is what you will enjoy during your tour of Athens.
Our licenced guide will meet you at 9 am at the hotel lobby and walking through Amalias street , passing by Roman Temple of Olympian Zeus and Adrian’s Arch , you will arrive at the Panathinaikon Stadium (site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896). Continuing you will pass by the Presidential House (ex Royal House) at Herodus Atticus str., cross the National Garden and arrive at Syntagma (Constitution) Square where you will see the Parliament and the Monument of the Unknown Soldier, guarded by the Evzones on their traditional uniforms.
Then you will have the experience of one of Athens’ bravura achievements: the Athens Metro. A magnificent marriage of high-tech transportation and archeology, this rapid transit system is a museum in of itself with its marble surroundings, displays of antiquities uncovered during construction and glass-encased artifact exhibits. Nowhere else in the world can one experience the glory of one civilization simultaneously within the urbanity of another.
Upon exiting the Metro you pass by the hill where St. Paul spoke to the Athenians on your way to the top of the Acropolis, home of the Parthenon, dedicated to Athena–the Goddess of Wisdom and Patron Goddess of Athens–the Erechtheion, the Temple Of Athena Niki and the Propylae.
After visiting the hill of Acropolis, your final destination will be the New Acropolis Museum (skip the line tickets), a marvel of architecture with a full exhibition of the glory of Ancient Athens.
