Marvel at the greatest of all archaeological sites and enjoy some free time to potter in the picturesque Plaka below.

The wonders of the awe-inspiring Acropolis were built in the 5th century BC and include the Temple of Athena, the lovely Porch of the Caryatids, and the crowning glory – the Parthenon. When you come back down to earth you’ll have some free time to soak up the Plaka’s village-like atmosphere in the shops and tavernas lining the cobbled streets.

Your leisurely drive between Piraeus and Athens is filled with enticing highlights, including Hadrian’s Arch, Statue of Lord Byron, and the Old Olympic Stadium – built entirely of marble for the first modern Olympic games.
