From the top of the Acropolis hill will have a view to the Odeon of Herodus Atticus, the Theatre of Dionysus, and the Areopagus (Mars Hill).

You will also see the Evzones (changing of the guards) at the Presidential Palace. The tour will provide a chance to observe the remarkable contrasts that make the city of Athens a fascinating place.

You will also visit the Athens Trilogy of culture (the National Library of Greece, the Athens University, and the Academy), the Memorial to the Unknown Soldier, the House of Parliament, and Constitution Square (Syntagma Square).
