Private Acropolis and Highlights Walking Tour of Athens

If we could describe the perfect day exploring the history of Athens, this would definitely be it. If your time is really limited in the city of Athens, the Acropolis and the highlights tour of Athens is the ideal option, since it gives you the chance to visit everything you cannot miss before you leave the city, only within three and a half hours. After we have explored the Sacred Rock of the Acropolis we will continue downhill together visiting the glorious Theater of Dionysos, the intricate gate of Hadrian, the Temple of mighty Zeus, the Old Olympic Stadium (the original stadium where Olympic Games where held), the Presidential Palace, the beautiful National Gardens and finally finish our tour at the constitution square where we will watch the impressive changing of the guards, which you will most definitely want to capture with a photograph.
