Visit the Panathenaic Stadium, Acropolis, Syntagma Square, Trilogy (Accademy - University - National Library) and Athens Central Food Market in this half day Ancient Athens & Food Tour!
This tour will take you to Athens in all possible ways. We will find Ancient Athens everywhere on this route. We start from your hotel where your English speaking professional guide and your luxury car will meet you. Our first stop will be the most beautiful, the most ancient and the most imposing monument in the world. The Acropolis. From here we will imagine life in Ancient Greece and we will talk about the life of the people who created the culture.
Ending our tour of the Acropolis, we will visit the Panathenaic Stadium, where the Olympic Games began. The Panathenaic Stadium is a classic and cultural monument of Greece and one of the most important monuments not only for Athens but for the whole of Greece. It is one of our city's most popular tourist attractions and one of Athens' landmarks.
Leaving the Panathenaic Stadium we will head to Syntagma Square in the heart of Modern Athens. We will take pictures of the Evzones. The name Evzones or Evzonoi refers to the members of the Presidential Guard, a ceremonial unit that guards the Greek Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
We depart and proceed to visit the most beautiful Neoclassical building in Europe. The Academy's main building is one of the major landmarks of Athens and part of the so-called Trilogy. The organization of the Academy of Athens, whose title harks back to the ancient Academy of Plato, was first established on 18 March 1926.
After this visit we head to the heart of Modern Athens and try our 'Tastings' to get to know it better. We will see Varvakio .... Varvakios Agora (Athens Central Market). This is literally the Grand Central Station of food. Make no mistake; all shops are here, from celebrity chefs to neighborhood grocery store owners. We will wander in the meat market and the fish market to get to know the riches of the Greek seas, buy fruits and vegetables and finally we will stop at the well-known "Miran", a taste of "tsipouro" or "ouzo" with pastrami, delicious sausages and smoked pork from the north or south of Greece. This is where our tour ends. Your guide and your driver will accompany you to your hotel.
