What You Can Expect

Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

See the Parthenon in Athens on a half-day sightseeing tour!

Book your chosen tour option and meet your guide in central Athens. Then, set off on your Athens sightseeing tour by luxury air-conditioned coach.

Hear insightful commentary from your guide, and pass top Athens attractions including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Greek Parliament building and Presidential Palace, the home of Greece’s royals until the monarchy ended in 1974.

See the Panathenaic Stadium, the venue of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Then, drive along Panepistimiou Avenue to snap photos of the National Library and one of Greece’s most revered orthodox churches.

After your coach tour, see two Athens’ historical treasures on foot. View the exterior of the Temple of Olympian Zeus — a gigantic, semi-ruined edifice completed in the 2nd century AD—as your guide explains its turbulent history.

Continue to Athens’ showpiece: the Acropolis. Stroll up to the UNESCO-listed site that served as the ancient citadel, and tour the buildings as you hear how they reflected Athens’ prosperity in the 5th century BC.

Admire the magnificent Parthenon, and see monuments including the Propylaea gateway and stunning Temple of Athena Nike.

After time to explore the rest of the site independently, return to your coach and end your tour back at the start point.

Morning Tour plus Acropolis Museum:
Make the most of your time at the Acropolis by upgrading the morning tour to include entry to the Athens Acropolis Museum, one of the world’s top museums.

Show your entrance ticket and explore independently. Walk around the spectacular Parthenon Hall to ogle the incredible sculptures of the Parthenon frieze, and roam the other galleries to view more than 4,000 other ancient objects.

Your ticket lets you spend as long as you wish inside the museum, although most people find two hours sufficient after their 3.5-hour morning tour.

This tour hit all of the spots we were looking to see - the Parthenon was a little busy, but only because two cruises has stopped to tour on that same day - aside from that, I highly recommend this tour if yo're looking for all of the 'top' attractions in Athens!
