Guided tour of Athens
Live tour commentary provided in English
Set out on a journey through centuries of Athenian history as you explore the city's distinctive sights with an expert guide. Witness important cultural traditions, visit historic ruins, and stroll through the labyrinthine streets of the Plaka neighborhood, browsing artisan souvenir shops.
Meet your guide in an illustrious square. Admire the grand buildings, including a former royal palace and the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. Here, Evzones—the guards of the Constitution—perform their changing of personnel in their unique attire. Hop on the metro to the Acropolis, arguably the hub of classical Greece, and hear the story behind great constructions such as the Parthenon and the Temple of Athena Nike.
Enjoy your expert guide's sense of direction as you wind through the warren of streets in Plaka. Savor the unique combination of smells—leather workshops, pressed olive oil, and local ouzo fill the air as you browse the shops spilling out into the streets. See the birthplace of the modern-day Olympics at Panathinaiko Stadium before your trip is completed in contemporary Athens.
