Description of the Athens Panorama Half Day Accessible Tour
The half day Panorama tour starts from the cruise terminal at the port of Piraeus or your hotel in Athens. Whether you are two people or a large group, we can accommodate you in a private vehicle with 4, 10 or 17 seats. We will drive towards Athens passing by the more modern suburbs of the city, and after 15-20 minutes we will arrive at the feet of the Holy Rock of Athens, the famous Acropolis, which dominates the scenery in Athens.
Acropolis is the classic place to be in Athens if you are a visitor, and definitely for a reason. The Parthenon was built in the 5th century BC and still is the imposing temple of the city.
You can admire and photograph all the monuments of the Acropolis from the specific point where your driver will transfer you. It is a point that few people actually know and offers the best view of the Acropolis, relieving you from climbing the steep and long stairs.
Later on, the tour will continue towards the Temple of Zeus and the Arch of Hadrian, and you will have the chance to admire the lovely National Gardens (ex Royal Gardens), that connect the Zappeion with the Parliament of Athens, which was the old Royal Palace.
The panorama tour will continue towards the picturesque quarter of Plaka and Monastiraki with the flea market, where you can see the Temple of Hephaestus, the Ancient Agora, the Roman Agora, Hadrian’s Library and the markets of the city, that will give you an idea of how the Athenians shop.
The tour will also take you to the actual stadium of the first modern Olympics in 1896, the Panathenaic Stadium, also known as Kallimarmaron, because it is made of fine quality Pentelic marble.
The Athens tour will end at the highest hill of Athens, the Lycabettus hill that will provide you the best backdrop for last minute pictures, since it offers panoramic views to the entire city and suburbs.
After taking some lovely pictures, the tour will bring you towards the lovely small harbor of Mikrolimano with its gorgeous views, the Marina of Zea where you can admire the rich cruise yachts and the ancient walls of Piraeus. You will also be able to see the Nautical Museum of Piraeus that houses the historical trireme, a replica of the original ancient ship, and of course the large Battleship Averof at Trocadero.
Finally, your driver will bring you to your hotel in Athens or your cruise terminal in Pireaus to catch your ship, for the rest of your cruise.
