What to expect

Start your walk from the Academy of Athens, one of the first buildings built when Greece gained its independence in the 19th century. It holds statues of the most important ancient gods and philosophers from Athens.

You'll head up to the Syntagma and after passing Erik Schliemann's house, you will find the parliament building and the first Royal Palace in Greece. Stroll through the National Garden built by the queen, an idyllic park right next door with paths, buildings and small lakes.

Through the park you will be led to the Kallimarmaro stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896 and you'll be able to view Hadrian's arch and the Temple of Zeus close by.

Your guide will take you through the Plaka area, before you head off to Areopagitou Street, Dionysus theater, Herod Atticus and the Parthenon.

Finally you'll reach the Philopappou hill where you will see the Socrates prison, the hill of the nymphs and the Philopappou monument. View the whole of Athens and Piraeus as you watch the sunset.
