About the ride

Get picked up by a local English - Speaking professional driver from Athens International Airport or Piraeus Port.

  • Pickup and dropoff from a professional English Speaking driver / Local Guide
  • 100% Customisable & Private

View and explore Athens’ main historical sites and landmarks in just a few hours with our Athens Layover experience. The experience is completely customizable, so you can choose how long you wish to spend in each location as well as make extra stops if you like.
Visit and explore the main historical sites of Athens such as the Acropolis and the Panathenaic (Old Olympic) Stadium.

After a quick introduction, you will board your private ride head towards Greece’s most well-known landmark, the Acropolis. By pre-planning your itinerary, you are able to avoid queues and head straight up to the main attraction site. Upon reaching the top of the hill you can enjoy a breathtaking 360° panoramic view of Athens and it’s seaside suburbs. At the Acropolis Hill, you will explore the infamous Parthenon, Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike, significant archaeological buildings that date back to the 5th century BC.

After the Acropolis Hill, your driver will take you to the next stops on the itinerary; the grand Temple of Zeus and the Odeum of Herodes Atticus, an ancient amphitheater. Following this, you will visit the Panathenaic Stadium (sometimes referred to as the Old Olympic stadium), the only stadium in the whole world built entirely out of marble. At your own pace, the tour will continue up to the Lycabettus Hill, the highest hilltop of modern Athens. Surrounded by pine trees and with a breathtaking panoramic view of the city, it is the perfect spot for a late lunch break or a quick snack before descending the hilltop. 

Then, your driver will escort you into the center while sharing his insider tips of the city. You will visit the President’s Palace and have the opportunity to watch the unique, traditional ritual of the ‘Changes of Guards’. Here you will also visit the Constitution Square (Syntagma square) and The Athens Trilogy (The Academy, University, and Library of Athens), a series of 19th-century neoclassical buildings still being used in modern Athenian society. 

In the last hour of your experience, you may choose between two historical attractions, the Acropolis Museum, Ancient Agora. The new Acropolis museum opened its doors in 2009 and has since been referred to as one of the best museums in the world. It is internationally renowned for its unique display of Ancient Greek History, in a minimal and modern architectural setting. Alternatively, you may choose to visit the Ancient Agora, a well-preserved agora used to hold religious, social and cultural activities in Ancient Greece. The Agora includes Greece’s most well-preserved temple, the Temple of Hephaestus as well as the Prison of Socrates.

Finish your ride with some Souvlaki in Plaka, Athens finest and most historic neighborhood. 

Before the end of your Sightseeing ride in Athens, you have the option to include an amazing Free Greek Products & Olive Oil Tasting at Yoleni's Greek Gastronomy Center. You will have the chance to learn about Greek Gastronomy through a small history lesson full of flavors.
