We took this 5 1/2 hour tour with a small group of six. Tonya was our guide and she was fabulous! We started at the Acropolis to beat the crowds and it was a very good decision because when we came out 1 1/2 hours later, it was very crowded. The Acropolis and Parthenon are stupendous. These are places we've... More

I traveled with 6 friends. We only had one day in Athens. We arrived around noon and our flight out was at 10pm. This was a perfect way to see the important sites all in a day. We were picked up at the airport and taken right to our first stop. Alex was awesome! He was very funny and entertaining.... More

We decided to start our trip to Athens with a private tour, just my husband and I. We were met at the condo we rented by Alex and John, who between the two of them could literally tell us all we needed to know at each stop/attraction. We were able to customize our tour by staying longer at one location... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
