Itinerary

When your cruise reaches the port, your guide will wait for you holding a Shorex sign.

Starting from the port, we will have a panoramic tour passing by Zea Marina, Kastela and Microlimano, heading to the suburb of Faliro where the old port of Athens is located. We will contemplate Olympiakos Stadium and the Peace and Friendship Stadium, where , among others, the 2004 Olympic Games took place.

Passing by the wide Syngrou Avenue, we will arrive at the centre of Athens to enjoy our first stop to the Panathinaic Stadium, also known as Kalimarmaro, which was established by Lycurgus in the 4th century BC and it was reconstructed in 1896 according to the original plan. This is where the Olympic flame is lit every four years.

We will continue our drive to Olympieion, the Temple of Olympian Zeus dated to the 4th century BC, one of the biggest temples of Corinthian order, and Zappeion, situated in the National Gradens, and then we will head to the Arch of Hadrian (2nd century AD) which divided the old city from the Roman city of Hadrian, to the Lord Byron monument and Syntagma Square, where we’ll see the Old Royal Palace constructed by King Otto, which today houses the Greek Parliament.

In front of the Royal Palace the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is located and permanently guarded by two soldiers.  Then we’ll head along Panepistimiou Street with the neoclassical buildings of the University of Athens, National Library and Academy of Athens.

In Athens, the cradle of European civilization for twenty-five centuries, the panoramic of the city is dominated by Acropolis rock, where we will visit (ticket paid on spot) its principal buildings: the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erectheion and the magnificent Parthenon.

Before heading back to the port of Piraeus, we can visit the ancient area of Athens, called Plaka, where we can enjoy some free time (depending on the departure time of your boat) to go shopping, taste the Greek gastronomy or visit (with the same ticket of Acropolis) the Temple of Zeus or the first theatre of European civilization, the Theatre of Dionysus.

We can also visit the New Acropolis Museum which is situated 300m from Acropolis (tickets paid on spot).

At the end of our excursion we drive back to the port via Syngrou Avenue
