Greeting you at the arrival cruise terminal and starting our tour in Piraeus Port and after 30min drive through the town of Piraeus and its beautiful ports -Marina Zea-Kastela-Mikrolimano- we will arrive in Athens and begin your tour with a visit at the Acropolis Hill (first thing in the morning to avoid heat and crowds).
The visit takes you through the Propylaea, its monumental gate, to the Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, to the Erechtheion, a site associated with some of the most ancient and holy relics of the Athenians, and the small temple Athena Nike protecting the gate of the citadel. From the Acropolis, you can also look down on the Ancient Agora, Tower of the Winds, Herodes Atticus Theatre, and the Theatre of Dionysos.
You will then continue on to visit the Temple of Zeus the largest in ancient Greece, taking over 700 years to build. Moving on you will proceed to the Panathenaic Olympic Stadium where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896.
From here, you will continue on to Lycabettus Hill (the highest hill of Athens) for great photo opportunities (this stop is not available for groups over 12 passengers).
Next you will see the changing of the Guards at the Tomb of the Unknwon soldier in front of the Greek Parliament. From here, you will be making your way back to the cruise terminal or a drop off point of your choice.
