Best Athens Shore Excursion
Visiting Athens should be the trip of a lifetime and for that reason, we offer outstanding tours that reflect our passion for the magnificent capital city. With Best Athens shore excursion you will be in the hands of experts and will not miss anything that Athens has to offer regarding structures and atmosphere.
Many Best Athens shore excursion promises to take you to Acropolis Hill at the same time which means that the location will be busy and extremely hot meaning that ultimately, you won’t be getting the experience you desire and deserve.
For this reason, after picking you up from the cruise terminal and travelling to Athens itself, we begin at the Acropolis Hill. This allows our visitors to experience the beauty of the location while the temperature is bearable and while it is quiet enough not to have to worry about crowds.
Best of Athens Shore Excursion will take you to the Parthenon, via the Propylaea and its historical gate, which is the temple built in honour of Athena and then on to the Erechtheion; the latter is said to be full to the brim with ancient relics of the Athenians themselves.
You will also get to experience the Athena Nike temple which was first erected as a layer of protection for the gate of the citadel. The sights don’t end there though as the Acropolis itself offers magnificent views of the Tower of the Winds, the Theatre of Dionysos as well as the Herodes Atticus Theatre.
After this, the Temple of Zeus will be the focus of attention; this temple took over 700 years to complete and was the biggest of its kind in Ancient Greece. You will then move on to the site of the first ever Olympic Games from way back in 1896; the Panathenaic Olympic Stadium. From here, the group will head to the biggest hill in the capital in the shape of the Lycabettus Hill, which provides a fantastic sight of the surroundings making it perfect for photos.
If all this isn't enough, the trip continues to the Ancient Agora and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier where you will witness the changing of the guards right next to the Greek Parliament. Furthermore, you will take a quick visit to the New Acropolis Museum after enjoying the delicious Greek cuisine. Only once all these sites have been appreciated, admired and photographed beyond doubt, will the trip end and we take you right back to the starting point at the cruise terminal.
