Come with ShoreTrips on an all-day tour of Athens! We'll see all the most important sites and have lots of fun doing it!
Start off by heading out to Syntagma Square (where most of the famous ancient monuments are located), plus the Parliament Building, the Memorial to the Unknown Soldier, and the National Library.
Next, we'll see the evzones in their picturesque uniforms and the Presidential Mansion on Herod Atticus Street.
We'll always make a stop at the Acropolis where, on your own, you can explore this ancient "high city," topped with marble temples dedicated to the city's goddess Athena and dating back to the Late Bronze Age. Please note that your driver is not licensed to accompany you if you climb to the top of the Acropolis.
If time allows, you might wander through the picturesque streets of the Plaka as you search out the perfect souvenir or a delicious plate of chicken souvlaki.
