Crossing the Syngrou Avenue, we will reach the center of Athens to enjoy our first stop to the Stadium od Panathenaikon promoted by Lycurgus in the 4th century BC and rebuilt in 1896 according to its original plan. The Olympic flame is carried here every four years.

The bus will then drive us to Olympieion (temple of Olympian Zeus) which dates from the 6th century BC, one of the largest temples of Corinthian style and the Zapion, located within the National Gardens.

Our exciting travel through time will continue with the visit to the famous Acropolis, dominating the Athenian landscape since 5th Century BC, Athens Golden Age. We will walk around the site and its notable structures, like the Propylaea and beyond them Parthenon, one of the most recognizable monuments of ancient civilization built as a temple to the patron deity of the city Athena, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Erectheum with its graceful Porch of the Caryatids.
