Athens Escorted Tours

Tours to Athens

Athens, the capital of Greece, is said to be the oldest city in the world. It has long since been recognised as a major centre in culture, economy and politics and is widely renowned as a source of art and philosophy. This is still evident in the city, which is characterised by ancient monuments, temples and landmarks showing the long tradition and history of Athens, that has literally gone from “Acropolis to Metropolis”.

Today, traffic-filled roads hide cobbled alleys with delightful tavern and cafes, ancient buildings house modern art galleries and an innocuous doorway could lead to a fantastic restaurant serving moussaka and ouzo. Join us on one of our escorted tours and see what Athens can offer you.

Athens guided tour highlights

Acropolis of Athens

The imposing Acropolis overlooks the city on an area of about 3 hectares. The well-preserved edifice dates back to the 5th century BC and is the most famous landmarks of Greece with its marvellous white marble columns.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The enormous amphitheatre was built in 161 AD on the south slope of the Acropolis. The structure had a capacity of over 5,000 and was used for theatre plays and musical performances in ancient times

Philopappos Monument

This monument is located southwest of the Acropolis and houses the mausoleum of a Greek Emperor of the early first century. The tall landmark offers stunning architecture and is a stickler for sculpture details.

Temple of Olympian Zeus

The temple built in the 2nd century AD was once the largest religious facility in ancient Greece. Its remains let you only imagine how enormous this temple once used to be.
