Top 10 Places that our bus drives you through and you can see 

  • The Acropolis 

A must see tourist attraction, this UNESCO world heritage site known as the High City that hosts the “Sacred Rock”, Greece’s heart and soul is the Parthenon and is a place where you will feel the ancient energy from right under your feet.  

  • The Parthenon 

One of the world’s most famous ancient monuments, your reason for wanting to visit Greece. The Acropolis, a treasure like no other awaits you resting majestically above the city for thousands of years.  

  • Plaka 

Athens most captivating little labyrinth of narrow lanes, beautiful neo-classical buildings and homes lined with over-flowing flower boxes, tavernas, and cafes. A favorite among Athenians for sunny weekends all about dining, coffees and watching people walk by. 

  • Theater of Dionysos&Odeion of Herodes Atticus 

On the southern slope of the Acropolis lays two magnificent ancient structures, the amphitheater where music was preformed since antiquity, and the ancient theater that was the birthplace of comedy and tragedy. 

  • Hadrian’s Arch 

Built in the 2cnd Century the famous arch was built to Honor the Roman Emperor proclaiming Hadrian as the new hero of all of Athens, replacing Theseus. 

  • Temple of Olympian Zeus 

This massive structure at one point in time was larger than the Parthenon and today the remains of this ancient temple stand southeast of the Acropolis. 

  • National Historical Museum 

This famous building was the home of King Otto of Greece and the former parliament building. The long eventful history is of great importance to Greece and houses many fine works of art, personal memorabilia from famous historical figures, traditional costumes medals and flags.  

  • Monastiraki  

Monastiraki Square is an active place and very touristy with just about anything for visitors and locals alike, the flea market is great for shopping, you can watch entertaining side acts on the street, or have a look in the busy little souvenir shops and definitely try a souvlaki or kebab. 

  • Roman Agora 

Funded by Julius Caesar and Emperor Augustus, the Roman Agora was built on to the Ancient Agora as an extension. The Roman agora was also a place of socializing and political as well as leisure. The imposing ancient structure is still standing and very well preserved. Inside the Roman Agora is the bewildering Tower Of The Winds. The tower bears relief figures depicting the eight gods of the wind. Don’t miss the relics of the Library of Emperor Hadrian (132AD) that stand on the north side of the Acropolis.  

  • Temple of Hephaestus  

Located on the western edge of the Agora surrounded by metal work and craftsmanship shops, the temple was dedicated to Hephaestus the God of the forge. It is a Doric peripheral temple that is still standing tall since it was first built in 449BC. From the 7th century until 1834, it served as the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George Akamates. 

  • Piraeus 

Just ten kilometers southwest of central Athens, Piraeus is total magnificence in its scale, its outwardly endless harbors host ferries, cruise ships, and copious yachts and is notably the biggest and oldest port in the Mediterranean. Piraeus is the “heart” of the Aegean ferry network, and the center of Greece’s nautical trade and naval headquarters. While theoretically its own urban abode, it seems to blend naturally into the greater Athens vicinity. Central Piraeus, at a first glance can seem unkempt and congested, and the hustle of the busy seaside city is not a place where tourists choose to remain apart from departing and arriving. But beyond its madness there are a few very favorable places to see such as the fabulous sector that lies east of the port, known as the Zea Bay Promenade Marina and Mikrolimano Harbor, where you will see the beautifully decorated strip along the seaside packed with cafes, bars and some of the best seafood restaurants. Without a doubt, Piraeus is the perfect addition for day trip sightseeing tour and a must see place

Bus tour fun

   

Avoid midday, go early or late to save the crowd, other than that a neat low cost easy way to see most of Athens. Get some sun cream if you intend to be on the deck. Water and food is allowed, so all cool.
