The day starts at the heart of Athens, historic Syntagma Square and Panepistimiou Avenue, with its stunning neo-classical architectural gems. Then we’ll explore Kolonaki, the inner city's wealthiest district, and Exarcheia, with its vibrant street and underground culture. We’ll see the Roman Agora and enchanting Aiolou Street as we venture through Plaka, the city's oldest and most picturesque neighborhood. We’ll end in the trendy district of Koukaki, home to wonderful bars and restaurants.
It’s impossible to find anything more impressive than the monuments on the Acropolis: the gleaming Propylaea, the graceful Erechtheum and the incomparably beautiful Parthenon. But the Ancient Agora of Athens was just as important to life in the ancient city. Nearby, the archaeological site of Kerameikos was the city's necropolis and its pottery district in ancient times. Psyrri was once home to Athens’ craftsmen and their workshops but is now a labyrinth of alleys lined with top-quality eateries and watering holes. We’ll pass the lively Monastiraki Square and nearby flea market on our way to gritty Metaxourgeio, a former silk-weaving hub and now a magnet for young artists. Finally, we’ll survey the city at sunset from Lycabettus Hill, the crowning peak of central Athens.
Get ready to run, as you head to the Panathenaic Stadium, built to host the first modern Olympic Games of 1896. Across the street, Zappeion park boasts beautiful fountains, tree-lined walkways and leads us into the National Garden, the former Royal Gardens and a cool haven of greenery graced with an abundance of exotic plants. We’ll pass the monumental Temple of Zeus, a spectacular Roman place of worship, on our way to Filopappou Hill, which overlooks the Acropolis and is crowned by the Filopappos Monument. The neighboring summit of Pnyx Hill was the site of the Athenian Assembly, where ancient democracy first took shape. It’s a fitting final stop to reflect on our exploration of Athens, its ancient history and modern influences.
