Description of the private tour in Athens
“The Acropolis of Athens
The tour basically starts from the Acropolis, which is by default the highlight of the city. It is considered an architectural masterpiece of the 5th century BC and one of the most important sites in the world.
The Academy of Athens
During the visit to the Acropolis you can see the Propylaea, the Erectheum, the Temple of Athena Nike (Victory) and the Parthenon which will definitely awe you. The Temples of the Acropolis are dedicated to Goddess Athena who is also the Patron Goddess of the city, and of course Zeus, who was the father of all Gods.
After the Acropolis, the tour will continue towards the Temple of Zeus, which is one of the most imposing temples in Greece; it is also the largest temple of Corinthian style that stands. Almost at the front of the Temple stands the Hadrian’s Arch, which was dedicated by the Athenians to the Roman Emperor Hadrian, separating the old city from the modern.
