Description

Experience the wonders of ancient Athens on this exciting private tour with a local guide who knows the city like the back of his or her hand, making this the ideal excursion for history enthusiasts who enjoy a crowd-free experience and only have a little bit of time. Take a stroll through Monastiraki Square, Anafiotika, and Plaka, historical neighborhoods in Athens dotted with narrow cobblestone streets, cafes and boutiques run by families. Travel to Monastiraki Square, located just north of Plaka, which perfectly showcases the mixture of cultures found in Athens. Begin your morning with a stroll through the square, enjoying the sights and sounds of Greek life. Continue on, through the non-touristy, picturesque part of the old town of Athens, also known as the Anafiotika. Here you will find the Roman Agora, Hadrian's Library, and the Tower of Winds - a timekeeping tower that houses a bronze weather vane. Continue your journey back in time as you make your way down the cobbled streets of the ancient neighborhood of Plaka, where you will walk in the footsteps of history. Discover how this historic neighborhood transformed throughout two millennia into the modern metropolis it is today, while also maintaining its archaic roots. Then, enjoy sights of iconic attractions like the Lysicrates Monument and the Theatres of Dionysus and Herodes Atticus. Enjoy approximately 2 hours of free time to further explore the area on your own, then make your way back to the meeting point in Monastiraki square to board your transportation back to the pier. Experience the hidden gems of Athens on this private guided tour. Save your spot and book this excursion today! Please Note: Your transfer back to the ship will depart from Monastiraki square. The tour leader will point out this meeting place earlier during the tour. Please ensure that you are there 10 minutes prior to departure as the departure vehicle can only stop briefly to pick up and then depart immediately for the Port of Piraeus.
