      From (USD) $281 Per Person (Group of 3)
      Highlights
      • The Acropolis: Its temples to Athena were converted to churches, a mosque, even an armory; today they're monuments showing the Golden Age of Athens.

      About this Athens tour

      Every four years, ancient Athenians would trek to the Acropolis in a solemn procession honoring Athena, the goddess of wisdom. This tour retraces parts of that pilgrimage; you, however, will arrive in an air-conditioned motorcoach, and can honor her in comfortable shoes.

      Like the ancients, you'll walk through the monumental marble gateway of the Propylea; ahead stands the Erechtheum, where city elders chose Athena to be the city's patron goddess. (Losing candidate Poseidon, the tempestuous sea god, threw an Olympian fit and promptly flooded the lowlands.)

      Marvel at the Temple of Wingless Victory, its builders clipped the wings of Nike, goddess of victory, so that she could never leave. And, of course, the Parthenon, looking better than it has in centuries after decades of painstaking restoration.

      Return to your motorcoach for a guided drive that includes the impressive remains of the Temple of Olympian Zeus (six centuries to complete, in one of history's great contractor disasters), the arch that Rome's Emperor Hadrian strode through on his own Athens vacation, the lush National Gardens, and the stately Parliament building.

      How smart were the Ancient Greeks?

      The Parthenon is considered a marvel of architectural symmetry, but there's not a single right angle or straight line. The illusion of symmetrical proportions was achieved by imperceptibly sloping every surface and edge, as you'll see if you look carefully at the front steps, which rise slightly in the middle.
