We’ll start the day by climbing the Acropolis hill where you’ll enjoy a private guided tour to admire the Parthenon, the Erectheion & the surrounding monuments (1,5 hour approx.). We'll then descend to Acropolis museum, in order to have a tour to its fascinating exhibitions without waiting in lines (1,5 hour approx.).
Afterwards, we stop for a refreshing lunch break (optional) with traditional Greek cuisine at a restaurant nearby. Our exploration will continue on by crossing Andrianou Street, the most distinctive street of Plaka neighborhood, full of sophisticated shops & souvenirs.
We will then reach the imposing Roman Agora & the Tower of the Winds. A little further down we'll admire the Library of Hadrian & the vivid life of Monastiraki Square, a place full of people & colors.

If we keep walking, we'll soon reach Syntagma Square, the most famous square of the city. We'll take some time to watch the valiant Evzones in front of the building of the Greek Parliament.
Having left Syntagma Square behind us, we'll stroll through the lush green oasis of the National Gardens for a while, an ideal place to relax away from the city noise. Our refreshing walk we'll lead us to the extraordinary Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games took place.
