About the trip

Join your fellow solo travellers on a city break to the oldest capital city in Europe – Athens. The city is one of the most important cities of the ancient world – the birthplace of democracy and home of western philosophy thanks to philosophers such as Plato. The Olympic games were reborn in Athens in 1896, at the Panathenaic Stadium. Exploring Athens on this escorted group city break, you’ll be walking in the footsteps of some of the most illustrious figures in human history. Standing proud is the Acropolis of Athens – the most striking and complete Ancient Greek monumental complex still existing in our times. And no visit to Athens would be complete without witnessing the impressive Parthenon, where construction began in 447 BC.

Sightseeing tour of Athens

After breakfast, we embark on a sightseeing tour of the ancient city. We discover the secrets of Athens, including its famous Acropolis. Our expert guide will take us to see the centre of the city, the Constitution Square (Syntagma), the House of Parliament, the Memorial to the Unknown Soldier and the National Library. On our way to the Acropolis, we witness Hadrian’s Arch, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, and make a short stop at the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first Modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. On the Acropolis, we visit the architectural masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens – the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and finally, the famous Parthenon. A visit to Athens would not be complete without a visit to the Acropolis Museum, a modern architectural building where, at last, the statues have found their home.
