    What to Expect
    Begin with a pickup from your central Athens hotel. Meet your knowledgeable guide, hop inside your air-conditioned minivan, and head into the heart of the city.

    Have your camera poised as you pause outside the peach-painted Greek Parliament House in Syntagma Square. Snap photos at the Monument to the Unknown Soldier as the evzones (Greek presidential guards) perform the perfectly co-ordinated ritual of the Changing of the Guard ceremony.
    
Keep your camera ready as you continue your drive around some Athens attractions. View the leafy National Garden, the buildings of the University of Athens, and more, and stop to take pictures of the Panathinaikos Stadium. Gaze through the entrance at this outdoor, 60,000-seater stadium as you learn how it was the stage for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, and is built using the excavated remnants of an ancient stadium. 

    Circle around the Roman Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch, and head for the UNESCO-listed Acropolis, Athens’ ancient rocktop citadel. 

Leave your minivan, and take a guided walk around the Acropolis’ main treasures. Inspect the Parthenon — the temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena — and marvel at other timeworn buildings such as the Nike Temple, Erectheion, Propylaia and others.
    
Having explored here, visit the stunning New Acropolis Museum, a recently built space ranked as one of the best five museums in the world. Explore the main collections of statues, friezes and carvings, all excavated from the Acropolis area.

    Refuel with a snack (own expense) at the museum café, and drive past Mars Hill and the Rock of Ares (Aereopagus) to the Agora. Once the political, social and commercial heart of ancient Athens, the site is littered with broken columns and remains from its heyday. See the reconstructed Stoa of Atalos and the beautifully preserved Temple of Hephaestus, as your guide explains their history.

    Afterward, return to the start point where your tour concludes.
