Experience the highlights of Athens while exploring the Acropolis and the old traditional city of Plaka. Take a short drive by motorcoach into cosmopolitan Athens. Pass the yacht harbor of Zea and Mikrolimanon’s waterfront. Arrive at the Acropolis for a breathtaking view of antiquity as you look upwards towards the marvelous structure of the Parthenon. Climb the pathway and steps with your guide as you’re led through the massive Propylaia onto the rock of the Acropolis itself. Begin to relive the glory that was Greece as you walk over this masterpiece. View the Parthenon, the delicate temple of the Wingless Victory and the Erectheion. Proceed to the heart of Plaka, where your guide will orientate you with the area before you enjoy some free time on your own exploring its back streets for souvenirs or maybe stop for a beverage in one of its many taverns.
