Explore Ancient & modern Athens
Step back in time to Ancient Greece as you begin your tour of Athens at the Acropolis, the birthplace of western civilisation. Admire the impressive Parthenon, towering over the city, and the surrounding temples before continuing on to the Agora, once the hub of Ancient Athens. Learn about the philosophical and political history of the city, then begin your journey into modern Athens, exploring the Monastiraki neighbourhood with its flea market and boutiques. Make your way to the biggest food market in the city and enjoy tastings of honey, thyme, olive oil and cheese from across Greece. You'll also have the chance to visit Plaka, the oldest and one of the most picturesque, neighbourhoods in Athens, and enjoy lunch in a traditional tavern under the Acropolis.
