The capital and largest city of Greece is one of the world's oldest cities with at least 3,000 years of recorded history. Standing atop magnificent Acropolis with its beautiful structures Parthenon, Propylaea and Erechtheum, one cannot stop admiring ancient constructors whose work survived until now in such a good condition.
WHAT TO SEE
You will visit Piraeus, the largest port in Europe, admire Hadrian's Arch, Temple of Olympian Zeus as well as Panathenaic Stadium. You will also visit remains of ancient Greek Agora and Roman Forum, take a walk in the historical neighbourhood of Plaka and watch the ceremonial change of guards in their unique uniforms in front of the Parliament. On the way back, we make a stop at Thermopilae at the monument of Leonidas – Spartan king who fought his last battle here, heavily outnumbered by Persian forces.
