Shore Excursion Athens: 6 hours itinerary

From the port of Piraeus, our shore excursion will head to Athens by bus. The first stop is the Panathenaic Stadium, or Kalimarmaro. Built entirely of white marble this cultural monument is the site from where the Olympic flame is handed over to host nations. From here we’ll have a brief stop admire the Arch of Hadrian.

We’ll continue with our shore excursion of downtown Athens at Syntagma Square; the centre of commerce and politics. Here we’ll see the Old Royal Palace, which is now home to the Greek Parliament. Time permitting, we’ll also stop at the Monument to the Unknown Soldier to watch the changing of the Guard by the soldiers in traditional Greek costume.

As one of the oldest cities in the world, there’s a lot to do in Athens. The shore excursion will next take in some of the neoclassical buildings of the city, such as the University, the Academy and the Library.

Jumping back on the bus, we’ll set off for the Acropolis. At this iconic citadel, we’ll dive into the history of ancient Greece. Discover the Temple of Athena, the Parthenon and the Erechthion.

Before returning to port, we’ll stop in the old historic neighbourhood of Plaka. Situated at bottom of the Acropolis hill, this neighbourhood is characterised by its quaint narrow streets, traditional tavernas and workshops. A charming place to end our Athens shore excursion and perhaps pick up a souvenir or two.
