Welcome to sunny Athens, the city symbol of Democracy!
The itinerary of the tour includes all the well-known monuments that none tourist must pass by.
Starting early in the morning from our meeting point, we will head directly to Panathenaic Stadium, where the first Olympic Games took place in 1896. In 2004, during the Athens modern Olympic Games the Stadium filled with moments of suspense and emotion during the archery contests and as the finishing line of the Marathon race.
