Monument of Unknown Soldier

Description

Our private tour starts with the visit of the naturally fortified hill of the Acropolis, the cornerstone of Athens existence. You will travel back in ancient times walking among the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the unique Parthenon & the Erectheion. From the top you will have a panoramic view of the ancient theater of Dionisos & the Herodion (Odeion of Herodes Atticus). Our private tour continues with the visit of the Temple of Zeus & of the Hadrian’s Arch along with the famous Panathenaic Stadium (also known as Kallimarmaron) where the first modern Olympic Games were revived on 1896.

Next stop is the Presidential Mansion (ex-Royal Palace) where you will monitor the traditional Change of the Guard. Our car will then climb you to St. George Lycabetus Hill with the best panoramic view of Athens (ideal place for taking photos). While on route of our private tour you will see important buildings & places such as the National Library, the Academy, the Univercity, the Old Greek Parliament & the Syntagma Square (Parliament building & Tomb of Unknown Soldier). Our next visit is the Hellenic Agora (Aeropagus), the Roman Agora & we finally reach the famous Plaka where you will be lost in narrow streets where the spirit of old Athens exists.

 

Our private tour goes on with driving via coastal highway towards Peloponnese. Our first stop/visit (ideal for taking photos) is the famous Canal of Corinthos which, through Isthmus, connects the Corinthian Gulf (Ionian Sea) with the Saronic Gulf (Aegean Sea) & cuts Peloponnese peninsula from the rest Greek mainland. We continue with our main destination which is the Ancient Corinthos. Exploring the archaeological area you will meet the main attraction the Temple of Apollo (built on a rocky hill), the Theatre, the Roman Odeon & the Glauke fountain into a natural rock. Besides them there is the famous “Vema” (tribunal) from where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians. Finally your knowledge will be complemented in the Archaeological Museum. Our last visit is the Acrocorinthos (the Acropolis), a monolithic rock overseeing the ancient Corinthos. You will find ruins of the Temple of Aphrodite, of the Ano Peirene Spring & of many churches. Our private tour ends with the return back to our starting point in Athens. Contact us for further details & info.
