Views of Athens & New Acropolis Museum

Your drive from Piraeus will pass by the Zea and Microlimano Marinas on your way to Athens. Your first stop will be the Old Marble Olympic Stadium, reconstructed in the 19th century on Roman foundations. This is where the revival of the games took place in 1896. After you pass by some of the most important sites of Athens including the Royal Palace, Constitution Square and the Monument to the Unknown Soldier, you’ll arrive at Acropolis Hill with a spectacular view of the Parthenon and the glorious monuments of the Acropolis.


Your tour continues to the New Acropolis Museum, which is an archaeological museum focused on the Acropolis findings.
