ORGANIZED from April to October: Departure daily 08.45 – Ret. 19:00
Starting at 08:45, observe the striking contrasts that make Athens a fascinating city. Your guide will take you to see the Panathenaic Stadium where the first Olympic Games of modern times were held in 1896 (short stop). Drive on, passing by the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian’s Arch, the Parliament, and the memorial to the Unknown Soldier, the Academy, the University, the National Library, and Constitution Square (Syntagma). On the Acropolis, visit the Architectural Masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens: The Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion, and finally “the harmony between material and spirit”, the monument that “puts the order in the mind”, the Parthenon. Continue and visit the place where at last the statues found a proper home and admire the wonders of the classical era at the new Acropolis Museum.
Continue to a local traditional taverna and enjoy a Greek lunch.
After a tasteful lunch drive along the coastal road to the most Southern point of Attica, the Cape Sounion, where the white marble pillars of the Temple of Poseidon stand. On the way, you have a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf and the little islands offshore. After visiting the Temple of Poseidon, you have time to walk at leisure on the rocky promontory of Sounion and take photos of a beautiful sunset.
